Millheim's Staff

  • KIM LAWRENCE - Senior Pastor

    Our pastor grew up in Akron here in Springfield Township. At the age of eight he would surrender to preach the gospel.  Wanting to serve in the military, he spent four years in the Air force after graduating from Springfield High School. Following his call into the ministry, he pursued a Bachelor of Science and a Master's Degree in Education. After completing his education, he returned to the Akron area and has served as the Senior Pastor of Millheim for the past 35 years. Our Pastor brings the Bible to life and teaches how to make the word of God applicable in our everyday lives. He leads with an in-depth knowledge of God's Word and a true heartfelt passion for Christ.  The congregation at Millheim loves his refreshing sense of humor and infectious smile. He is a true inspiration to those in his congregation by living out the compassion and love of Christ.  His wife Kathy lost her battle to cancer in 2016.  Pastor Lawrence has a married daughter Michala whose husband Alex has also surrendered to preach the gospel.   Pastor Lawrence also has a son Jared who also has a heart for God. 


  • SCOTT ROCKICH - Assistant Pastor

    My name is Scott Rockich. God has given me a wonderful wife (Pam) who helps me fulfill my position here at Millheim. I couldn't have asked for a better wife, partner in ministry and mother to our five children:  Taylor, Christian, Ali, Isaiah and Sam. God has also given us a son-in-law Brian and three grandpups! In our family, we love to laugh, read, spend time together and with our extended family, go on vacation and if you'd ask me and my kiddos, play video games.  In 2005, Pam and I surrendered our lives to preach and had no clue exactly how God would use us.  Since that time, we both have had many opportunities to serve our children, teens and adults here at Millheim.  We give all the credit to the Lord for inviting us to work with Him but, most importantly, we thank Him for loving us and letting us know.

  • GREG ROCKICH - Music Minister

    It has been my privilege to serve in our music programs since 1996 and I am so thankful for the talented men and women that God continues to bring our way.  God has blessed me with my beautiful wife Becky, four sons Ryan, Brett, Scott and Cory, three wonderful daughters-in-law, Jessica, Pamela, Jordon, seven grandsons Steven, Christian, Isaiah, Samuel, Malachi, Micah, Nehemiah and four granddaughters Taylor, Hannah, Emma and Alexandra. (yes and Taylor's husband Brian too)!  I love Sunday afternoons when our home is filled with love and laughter as we get to enjoy another wonderful meal Becky has prepared for our entire family! Our joy from the Lord Jesus and His blessings include seeing my father and mother (Samuel + Freda) baptized; our grandchildren saved by the Grace of God; Our son Scott and his wife Pamela being called here at Millheim into the ministry as assistant pastor and wife; seeing Cory using his talent in our praise team; and my precious Becky teaching 4 and 5 year old children each Sunday.  For me, singing with grace is easy when you have found His Grace to be sufficient !  Colossians 3:16
