Pastors & Staff

Michael Lehman

Teaching Pastor

Michael feels so blessed to be able to serve and minister in Columbia Station, the community in which he grew up. Having graduated from Columbia High School in 1996, he went on to obtain a BA from Cleveland State University in Operational Management, and a Masters Degree in Homiletics from Liberty University. Michael's desire is that Jesus Christ would be made known and made much of in this community and around the world. Michael is married, and the father of three. 

joseph Liana


Joe's salvation story is a unique one. He got saved, not by someone preaching to him, or by attending a friend's bible study, but by reading the Bible. He grew up in Catholicism, and over time, God revealed Himself and His truth to Joe through His word. He spent years ministering through a Christian Radio program called "Catholics With Questions", and is now ministering through teaching Bible Studies. 

Robert Lehman


Bob's life changed on December 22, 1980, when he was delivered from the wrath of God by Jesus Christ. He has been an elder for approximately 28 years, and his hope for Abiding Faith is that we, as a body of believers, will realize that we have been called for a purpose by God. That we will continue to grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ. That the members of Abiding Faith would make every effort to allow the Holy Spirit to lead them, and that we all would be faithful to that call and always be obedient to His Word, at whatever cost.
