Jeremy Gyorke - Founder and Lead Pastor

I have been in full-time ministry since mid-2000. My wife Julie and I are so thankful we were able to start Wyandotte Family Church back in September 2010. I love serving as the lead pastor and the years have gone by fast. My favorite aspect of ministry is talking and praying with people. I love to encourage people and help people discover how much Jesus loves & knows them!

First and foremost, my spare time is spent loving and connecting with my amazing wife Julie and my family. Having four children is a lot of work, but even more joy!!! I love to hang out with people, drink strawberry smoothies, and enjoy fantasy football. 

I love Jesus so much because I have never encountered such love and grace in my entire life. Not only His death on the cross for my sins, but His continual grace, forgiveness, love, strength, power, and hope He gives me is amazing! I love following Jesus and letting Him transform me one day at a time.

Wyandotte Family is truly a special place. I love the authenticity, the energy, and the raw passion for Jesus. I love how we work hard to make it simple for people to find and follow Jesus. I love being a part of a church like this!

 Jeremy has a B.A. in Youth Ministry & Bible from Central Bible College. He is currently pursuing his Masters in Practical Theology with a concentration on Pastoral Leadership from NorthPoint Bible College.

I have been the children’s pastor and teaching the kids at Wyandotte Family since we started our launch group in 2009, but I have been involved in children’s ministry since I was a teenager. Teaching is definitely my favorite part of ministry. I love creatively sharing Jesus and watching kids come alive by the knowledge of God’s love!

In my spare time, I love to hang out with my four kids and Jeremy.

I love Jesus so much, because He first loved me! He never gives up on me, and has this amazing plan and adventure for my life.

Wyandotte Family is a great place to serve, because you can be yourself!!

Julie has a B.A. in Children’s Ministry & Bible from Central Bible College and a M.A. in Pastoral Clinical Counseling from Ashland University

Pastor James

James Peterson - Family Pastor

I joined Wyandotte Family Church as the Family Pastor in the Spring of 2018. My favorite aspect of ministry is being able to take the truths of God’s Word and helping people apply them in meaningful ways to their own lives.

In my spare time, I love spending time with my beautiful wife, Amanda, and our two children. As a learner, I feel right at home buried under a stack of books or perusing various museums and other places of interest.

Wyandotte Family Church is an incredible place to serve. 

I have a B.A. in Music Education from Michigan State University and a B.A. in Ministerial Leadership.

Jessica Sellenberg - Youth Pastor

I have been the youth pastor here at Wyandotte Family for the last two years. My favorite thing about my ministry here is building relationships with people!

I love spending time with my husband, Michael. Together we enjoy restoring furniture.

Wyandotte Family Church is such a clear picture of the New Testament church. It’s an honor to serve in a community that understands how Jesus designed the church to function.

Jessica has a B.A. in Youth Ministry with a minor in music from Lee University. 

Michael Sellenberg - Music Director

Michael Sellenberg - Music Director

I love to lead others into the presence of God through music and singing. When people connect with God through music, their lives are changed.

In my spare time I love to read comics, restore furniture, and play X-Box. I love puns and have the championship belt in the thumb wrestling associatoin of America. (ok, maybe not the last statement).




Support Staff


Jonathan Ragsdale - Office Coordinator

Originally from Arkansas, I met my wife, Jaime who is from Dearborn, in Missouri in 2005 and we married in 2008. We like to tell people that we never really dated, but rather just “hung out” for 2 ½ years.

We have two outstanding boys, Isaiah…6 and Jeremiah…4. I run about 25 miles a week because my favorite thing to do is eat. I love being involved in ministry because I love to see God change people’s lives, especially mine.
