Mike Bean has served as Pastor of Sunbury Nazarene since December 2006 and been in ministry for 15 years. Born and raised in the Pocono Mountains in the small town of Bangor, PA, Mike met his wife Sarah while studying social work at Mount Vernon Nazarene University (MVNU). It was at the end of his senior year at MVNU when the Spirit confirmed in Mike’s heart the calling of pastor and was then licensed and ordained in the Church of the Nazarene. Since then, Mike and Sarah have been blessed with two boys, Curtis and Conner, both of whom attend DCS. In his spare time, he enjoys music, grilling out, and getting creamed by his boys in an occasional game of basketball. His life verse is Romans 12:1, “Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God, which is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is - His good, pleasing and perfect will.”
Judy received her Bachelor of Science in elementary and early secondary English as well as a Bachelor of Arts in music from the State University of New York in Oneonta. She received Christ as a young mother and soon after was called to Christian Education. She has served the Lord for 29 years in five different Christian Schools, recently retiring from Delaware Christian School after teaching high school English there for 12 years. She and her husband, Jerry, have three grown children and are now raising their twelve-year-old grandson, Jared. A verse that has come to mean a great deal to her is Ephesians 4:1-2: "As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love." In retirement, she hopes to be used by the Lord in whatever ways He leads, and is grateful for this opportunity to serve on the DCS School Board.

Jill graduated from Ohio University in 1979 with a Bachelor's Degree in Education. It was at Ohio University in Athens, Ohio where she came to know and accept Jesus Christ as her personal savior. After marrying her husband, Russell Martin in 1980, she continued teaching fifth grade. After Russ was hired at the Delaware Police Department, Jill accepted the position of fifth grade teacher at Delaware Christian School and the couple began attending Delaware Bible Church where they continue to worship currently. In 1982, their first son was born and Jill took time off to enjoy being a mom and to pursue certification in Multi-handicapped and Learning Disabilities. From 1984-1991 she worked part-time for Delaware City Schools as an SLD tutor. When their son, Nolan, was in fifth grade and daughter, Alexandra, was in the second grade at DCS, Jill began teaching special needs students and continued through 2003. After Alexandra's graduation from DCS in 2005, Jill was hired at Olentangy School District as an Intervention Specialist and continued working with children with handicaps completing 30 years of teaching in 2015. Jill counts it a privilege to help assist her elderly parents who continue to live somewhat independently, enjoys Wednesday morning ladies' Bible study, and gardening, privately tutors, and supports her husband as the Delaware County Sheriff. Jill's favorite Bible verse is Romans 8:28, "And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those whoa re called according to His purpose."
Natalie received her Bachelor of Arts in Communications/Public Relations from Ohio Northern University. That was also where she met her husband Erik, whom she married in 2002.

Along with joining the DCS School Board, Natalie volunteers at the school in various roles when needed. She became a Christian as a young child and God has been a patient and faithful presence in her continuing journey with Him. A verse that has become a personal prayer for her is Psalm 139: 23-24 “Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” Her family attends Delaware Grace Brethren Church.
