Our vision

Becoming masterpieces together

 
 

“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” - Ephesians 2:10

 
Donec consectetur, odio eget porta varius, orci mauris viverra ante, eget egestas turpis sapien vel orci.

Mosaics are masterpieces created out of broken pieces, works of art that demonstrate beauty in the ordinary or even the discarded. Stained glass windows are beautiful, complex creations using broken, smaller pieces. Not only are stained glass windows beautiful, light shines through and casts a beautiful shadow on whatever it touches.

Mosaic Church believes that you are loved and valued, not because of what you’ve done but because of who you are. So much of life screams that to be valued we must be a certain way, contribute a certain way, look a certain way, or do a certain thing.

But we believe that God created us to be masterpieces, placing his own image within us. That image means that we are inherently valuable. We don’t have to work for the gift we have already been given.

Mosaic Church is dedicated to showing you how to embrace the masterpiece that God has created you to be. We believe that God is the God of second (and third and fourth…) chances, that he can transform any life. There is no canvas he can’t bring beauty out of, no life that can’t be redeemed, no person who is not valued.

We invite you to come and hear about the story that God speaks over you, a story of love and value, of redemption and wholeness. It’s a story that says that you are more than you imagined. It’s a story that he invites you to trust and embrace.

 

What we believe shapes who are become.

 

Our statement of beliefs

 
 

About God
We believe that there is one God, who exists in three persons- the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe they are eternal- having no beginning or end (Matthew 3:16-17, 1 Timothy 1:17, 1 John 5:20).

We believe that Jesus Christ is God. We believe that he lived a life free from sin and that, through his death, he took the penalty for our sins and paid the debt that we could not pay (John 1:1-31 Corinthians 15:3-8). 

We believe that the Holy Spirit is our comforter, healer, and guide. He conveys the grace of God to us, while also revealing the sin in our lives. He empowers us to live the lives that God has called us to live. 

About the Scriptures
We believe the entire Bible is the inspired Word of God and God moved in the heart of people to write it. Because of this, we believe the Bible always accomplishes what it sets out to do (2 Timothy 3:16).

About Humanity
We believe that all people were created in the image of God. We were created to have full and complete relationship with Him. Because of our sinful disobedience and rebellion, we have become alienated from him. As a result, we are not capable of restoring that relationship on our own (Romans 3:23).

About Redemption & Salvation
We believe that because of His sacrifice, through His death on the cross, that all people are offered the free gift of forgiveness of their sins (Romans 6:23) - not through any efforts of our own. This gift means that we will have a life that never ends through Jesus.

This gift means that we can be reconciled to God, restoring our relationship with him.

About the Christian Life
We believe that through a relationship with Jesus Christ, we are made new (2 Corinthians 5:17). Because of this, followers of Jesus are empowered to live for Him and not for themselves. By living in obedience to God's Word and yielding each day to His Spirit, every believer should mature and become more like Christ every day.

About Our Hope as Christians
While the Bible talks about heaven, we believe that our hope is not in a ethereal hope of someday existing in heaven. We believe Jesus taught us to embrace the Kingdom of God now (Matthew 6:10) while looking ahead to the restoration of all things (Acts 3:21). Jesus tells his followers that he will return to set all things right, restoring heaven and earth and completing the work that began in his earthly ministry (2 Peter 3:13).

About Our Responsibility as Christians
Humanity was created in the image of God (Genesis 1:26-27). We believe that we are because of this, people have inherent value. We are called to work for the benefit of others, serving people in real and tangible ways (Philippians 2:3-11) to demonstrate the insurmountable love of God to them.

 

Our Faith Family

 

The Wesleyan Church’s roots go back to the 18th century and a man named John Wesley. Driven by a commitment to living out his faith in Jesus with integrity in the public sphere, John founded the Methodist movement amongst his peers in the Church of England. As the movement spread, social issues became part of what it meant to be a Methodist, campaigning against slavery, alcohol abuse, and even sexism. Wesley and his followers fought to see people redeemed, both spiritually and societally.

 

The Wesleyan Church was founded as a merger between the Wesleyan Methodist Church and the Pilgrim Holiness Church in 1968. Mosaic Church has been a member of the Wesleyan Church in its various forms for over 150 years and we continue to be committed to Wesley’s goals of bringing hope and redemption to the people in our parish: Clinton County!

 

Our Team

 
 

Pastor Jordon LeBlanc

Pastor Jordon comes to us from sunny Canada, where it's summer all the time! Jordon graduated from Kingswood University (Bethany Bible College) in April 2007. After graduating, he did what any college grad would want to do: get married. He married Jennifer Addison from Syracuse, New York.

Jordon and Jennifer moved to Cadyville in June 2016 after serving in the Southern Tier for five years as youth and discipleship pastor.

Jordon is a self-proclaimed (among others...) nerd, enjoying computers, web-design, Star Wars and other nerd-like things. He also enjoys music (playing and listening to), movies, and going for long walks on the beach.

He also has a passion for God and for people. His hope that Cadyville Wesleyan will be a church that reaches all kinds of people and brings them the awesome, life-changing news that God loves them! He also has a passion for worship and hopes to see people grow in their relationship with God through worship, both on Sunday mornings and throughout the week.

Favorite Bible Verse: “God’s law was given so that all people could see how sinful they were. But as people sinned more and more, God’s wonderful grace became more abundant. So just as sin ruled over all people and brought them to death, now God’s wonderful grace rules instead, giving us right standing with God and resulting in eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” - Romans 5:20-21

Favorite Quote: "The greatest single cause of atheism in the world today is Christians who acknowledge Jesus with their lips and walk out the door and deny Him by their lifestyle. That is what an unbelieving world simply finds unbelievable” - Brennan Manning

Favorite Book: Hard to say. Repenting of Religion by Gregory Boyd, Spiritual Direction by Henri Nouwen, Surprised by Hope (and practically anything else Wright has written) by N.T. Wright, The Cost of Discipleship by Dietrich Bonhoeffer, and several others have made lasting impacts on me.

Favorite Movie: Star Wars: Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back... or Newsies

Favorite Snack: (Canadian snack) No-Name Ketchup Chips. (American snack): Pretty much anything salty.

Favorite Food: Hard to say, but I make a mean hickory-smoked brisket (beef, for those of you not in the know).

Favorite Drink: Cold Drink: I try to avoid it, but real sugar Pepsi. Hot Drink: Any good, freshly-roasted coffee.

Favorite Restaurant: How can I choose one? Here are a few!

Aleka’s- a little Greek food restaurant in Plattsburgh.
Smoke Signals- a BBQ restaurant in Lake Placid. If you can’t try my brisket, try theirs!
Romano’s- a bowling alley/bar/restaurant in Saranac Lake. Their Buffalo wings are incredible!

What you wish people knew about you: I love to laugh. Best way to get to know me is to do something that we can laugh together through.

What you wish people knew about God: God's hope for you isn't about trying harder and doing better. He's offered us freedom that can change us. It's not about trying, but about embracing the gift that he is giving us because of Jesus!

Pastor Franklin HerrNeckar

Pastor Franklin comes to us from Corning, NY in the beautiful Finger Lakes Region.  Originally he is from Waterbury, Connecticut but moved to New York in his early teenage years.  Franklin originally went to Corning Community College and Alfred State where he majored in information technology (IT).  He spent 7 years working in IT before being called into the ministry after attending a youth leaders conference in Indiana. He left his job in 2015 and attended Houghton College full time and received his bachelors in theology.

One month after graduating, he married the love of his life Sarah Hurley of Sayre, Pennsylvania.  After returning from their honeymoon, they both started a new adventure together and made the move to Plattsburgh in July 2018. (Talk about a lot of change all at once)! Prior to getting married and moving, they both served as youth leaders in the Southern Tier.

Franklin is what some might call an uber nerd (editor’s note: compared to Pastor Jordon’s just plain nerdery). He enjoys computers, table top games, anime, all things that start with Star (i.e. Wars and Trek), and the Marvel universe.  He also enjoys being outdoors and spending time near or on the lake especially when sailboats are involved.

He has a passion for youth and family ministry as he believes that it is important to provide both children and teens with the proper tools to develop and grow their own relationship with God. Having come from a background in information technology, he also has a passion for using those skills to build God’s kingdom. 

Favorite Bible Verse: “The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.” 1 Corinthians 10:13 NLT

Favorite Movie: The Terminal… it’s weird, I know.

Favorite Superhero: that’s SO hard but if I had to choose it would be Iron Man for Marvel and Green Lantern for DC

Favorite Snack: Garlic Stuffed Olives (give me ALL the garlic!!)

Favorite Food: Eggplant Parmesan (or anything with garlic)

Favorite Drink: Mountain Dew Voltage (sponsored by youth pastor’s everywhere)

Favorite Restaurant: Moonies (one of the top places in the nation to get great Mac ‘n Cheese, I miss being near one!)

Favorite Hobby: It’s hard to pick just one thing, but most often I can be found playing WarHammer 40K at the game shop, playing video games, or tinkering around with my RC planes and drones.

What you wish people knew about you: I can relate to most people, one way or another. I am a super nerd (I have watched everyone episode of Star Trek) but I also grew up on a farm (I spent my summers bailing hay and raising dinner). Also I’m an Eagle Scout.

What you wish people knew about God: He loves us so much and He wants us to carry out that love to the rest of the world.
