Pastor Mike Remel is a graduate of Pen Argyl High School and The Career Institute of Technology. He has an undergraduate degree from East Stroudsburg University in history, and in 2010 earned his Master of Divinity from Palmer Theological Seminary.

Pastor Mike's  home church is First UMC, Wind Gap, where he was actively involved in youth and young adult ministries. In his eighteen years as a pastor he has served several churches, including Portland UMC, the New Life Outreach Circuit in Carbon County as an Associate, and the Georgetown and Mt. Pleasant UM Churches in Southern Lancaster County.

The smaller church is where Pastor Mike would rather be. He believes his gifts for ministry are best suited for small, close-knit communities. His strengths for ministry include a compassion for others and the ability to engage folks in ways that will lead to faith in Christ, as well as equip them for giving leadership to some aspect of ministry in the local church. Mike has a love for history, for cooking, and for the outdoors. He especially enjoys hiking in the forest surrounding Mount Gretna, spending time at his family's cabin in the Poconos, and most of all, spending time with his teenage son, Shawn.
