We are an association of churches scattered throughout Maine voluntarily affiliating with one another for the purpose of seeing a greater gospel impact across our state. The motivation behind our collaboration is knowing that no one church can do it alone. We embrace the reality that we are Better Together.
Dr. Mike and Sue Nerney
Dr. Mike Nerney was born and raised in MA. He grew up in the Catholic church and attended Catholic schools for 13 years. However, as a teenager he was introduced to the Bible and what it means to be a Christian. After nearly 8 years of struggle, as a senior at Bentley University, at 21 years old Mike trusted Jesus as His Savior. His wife Sue was introduced to the Christian faith soon after and they were married in 1991. After spending 7 years in corporate accounting, the Nerney's moved to NC to attend seminary full time. Mike then served for 9 years as pastor of Living Water Community Church in Oakland, ME. Most recently, he served as Associate Pastor at Calvary Baptist in Bel Air, MD for the past 10 years. In November 2021, the Nerney's returned to Maine to serve as Director of the Maine Baptist Association. The Nerney's have a son here in Maine and a daughter and son-in-law living in Raleigh, NC. They are thrilled to be back in New England and serving alongside our churches!
