  • Brian March

    Senior Pastor

    Welcome to Broadneck EP Church! My name is Brian March and I’m the Senior Pastor of this wonderful Bible believing church on the Broadneck peninsula. I completed my MDiv in 2013 at the Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando, and was called by BEP shortly after as an Associate Pastor. I began my ministry career in Lakeland, Florida, but have also served as a missionary in Ethiopia. It was serving the Lord in Ethiopia when I answered the call of God to finish seminary and pursue pastoral ministry. I’ll always have a heart for missions, but I absolutely love preaching, teaching, and shepherding the people of God in our church and community. My wonderful wife Adrienne and I love it here. Our four children (two boys, two girls) also love their church friends at BEP, and have found it a wonderful place to worship and know God. Adrienne and I are also adoptive parents, and have enjoyed walking through the adoption with our church family. 

    If you are seeking a church where you will hear Christ and Him crucified, I invite you to join us. We aim to fix our eyes on him because he is our hope, our joy, and our life. If you’d like to hear more about the God we love and serve, we’d love for you to come and join us.

  • Jon Pickens

    Associate Pastor (Director of Student Ministries)

    My wife, Amy, and I met and became friends while attending and working with the youth at the church where we grew up in Montgomery County, MD. We enjoy being outside (hiking, biking, camping, and the like), food, and just hanging out with people. I graduated from Geneva College, outside of Pittsburgh, with a degree in civil engineering. A civil engineering degree trained me to do several things…pastoral ministry was not one of them. So I attended Reformed Theological Seminary in McLean, VA where I received an MDiv. After seminary I served as an assistant pastor northeast of Philadelphia. I enjoy reading and, like Brian, reading theology. The gospel of Jesus Christ is awesome and being able to know Christ is the greatest privilege someone can possess. For me, being able to teach and preach Jesus Christ and pastor his people is the greatest job to be had. 

  • Heather Deterding

    Children's Director

    Part-Time Ministry Staff

    I come from a family with parents who love to serve God and His church, especially in ministries to children.  I'm so thankful for them and for the saints who poured into my life at Aisquith PCA and New Covenant PCA as I grew up in Christ.  I met my husband Steve at our denomination's beloved middle school camp, Victory Jam, where we were youth interns. We both attended Grove City College, where I earned a degree in Elementary Education. After I graduated in December 2005, I married Steve and joined him at BEP. We are raising five wonderful daughters, enjoy gathering people together at our home, and love being a part of this church family. I've been on the Children's Ministry Team since 2008, alongside many faithful ministry coordinators and teachers.  It is a privilege to encourage and equip young families to abide in Christ and make Him the center of their lives and homes.

  • Olivia Patton

    Youth Intern

    Part-Time Ministry Staff

    I graduated from Liberty University May 2022. I studied Church Ministry and Christian Leadership with a minor in Woman’s Ministry. I grew up in West River Maryland along with my three older siblings. I love playing sports, working out, coffee shops, adventures, and being with friends.  My heart’s desire is for young girls and women to taste and see that the Lord is who He says He is, by being in His word, in prayer, and in community.

    Stacy & I were married in 1974 at EP Annapolis Church.  Both of us are from local families and we have been blessed to spend our entire marriage at AEP and BEP.   We have 4 beautiful daughters and 8 grandchildren. We have been at BEP since 1990 when Nina Martin invited our triplet girls to join Heather Peck in her Sunday School class. I have served in Youth Groups, Building Committee, Finance Ministry Team, Perspectives Community, as a deacon, and an elder.

  • Courtney Della

    Office Manager & Ministry Support

    I proudly hail from West Virginia and happily call the Broadneck Peninsula home. My family first came to BEP for the Christ-centered youth ministry in 2001. My youngest daughter lives and works in Annapolis, my oldest daughter and her husband live in Annapolis with my three grandchildren, and my son and daughter-in-love are in Ohio.

    Serving others for God is in BEP's "DNA." The Lord has blessed me abundantly with my family here at BEP and I enjoy serving at the “kitchen table” here in the office. Our staff's first priority is the person walking through the door, stop by if you need any help!

  • Tanya McGrath

    Administrative Assistant & Care Coordinator

    My husband, Pat and I live in Annapolis, MD. We have one son, two daughters and two granddaughters. I am originally from New Jersey and met my husband in Annapolis. We have attended BEP for several years, and have found it a very warm and welcoming place to worship. I enjoy painting, running, singing on the worship team and spending time with family and friends. I consider it a blessing and a privilege to serve in the BEP office. It is wonderful to witness God working in and through the body of Christ here throughout the week.
