Board of Directors

Pat Testerman

Pat is an associate pastor in rural New Hampshire. He holds a Master’s Degree in Christian Ministry from North Park Theological Seminary.  He and his wife, Martha, met as college students, married after graduation, and spent the next two decades traveling around the world with the military before moving to New Hampshire.  After the military, Pat flew as an airline pilot and served in law enforcement before entering vocational ministry while continuing to serve as a part-time police officer. Martha is a certified labor doula, birth assistant, and childbirth educator, and was the primary homeschool teacher for their three children, now adults.

Pat and Martha began partnering with NCCF soon after its founding in 2017, and became close friends with Nick, Kate, and their kids.  They were meeting with Nick individually and as a couple until his passing, and it was Nick who encouraged them to begin studies with the Christian Counseling and Education Foundation (CCEF).  Martha and Pat have each earned the CCEF Formation Certificate, and Pat is currently pursuing his Essentials of Biblical Counseling certificate.

He and his wife, Jessica, have four children with a fifth on the way. Jonathan enjoys hanging out with his family and watching his NY Mets, Jets, and Nets.

Jonathan is excited to be involved with NCCF because of the way they come alongside and partner with the local church. He appreciates that NCCF loves pastors and understands how challenging their role is and he loves how they come alongside these Shepherds and offer sincere care and counsel while also partnering with them to equip and care for their congregation.

Matt and his wife, Heidi, have been married for about 30 years. They both enjoy their three young adult children and seeing where God is taking them in the world. Their bernedoodle, Jubilee, rounds out the family and keeps them all laughing.

Matt has been serving as the Lead Pastor of CenterPoint Church since November 2015, where he loves being a part of living and sharing a life-changing relationship with Jesus. CenterPoint was founded as First Baptist Church of Concord, NH in 1818, and continues to carry the mantle of faithfulness to the gospel of Jesus in the heart of the city. 

New England is a wonderful region of our country and is seeing a powerful movement of God across a variety of churches and ministries. Matt loves being a part of that movement which includes North Country Christian Formation.
