Rev Mike Haddox, Jen, Isaac and Jesse

Senior Pastor

Pastor Mike, a.k.a. “Bear” by family and friends, is the Senior Pastor here at FPC of Jerome. Married to Jen, the couple have two active boys who love the hiking, camping and fishing. Even as recent transplants from the east coast, with their love of the outdoors, it hasn’t taken them long to fall in love with Idaho.

With close to 20 years of youth ministry and tutoring experience, Pastor Mike has a passion for discipleship and christian formation for all ages, along with a desire to see our faith passed on to future generations.

When he’s not busy changing diapers, playing hide with his boys or working, can be found perfecting his yo-yo and balloon animal techniques, as well as polishing his ukulele skills.

NIEHAUS, Paul & Glenda (2)

Glenda and Paul Niehaus Office Secretary

I’ve been married to my best friend, Paul, for 25 years. God has blessed us with 5 beautiful, amazing children, two awesome son-in-laws and 10 magnificent grandchildren. We have been at FPC since 2000. This is my second time around of being the secretary…as always my plans aren’t always in line with God’s. But, right now this is His plan for me. I serve an awesome God, I love Him and know He continues to work in my life and the lives of my family!
