Meet Our Leaders

Dan Greco Dan Greco: Lead Pastor
My wife Anna and I have 3 great kids and Sammy the dog.  I graduated from Valley Forge Christian College and have served in several different ministry positions through the years.  I love spending time with my family, playing basketball, and riding motorcycles.  My favorite Scripture verse is Proverbs 4:23 which says, “Above all else, guard your heart, for from it flow the springs of life.”  You can contact Dan here.

Kevin-Staff Kevin Holt: Community Pastor
I grew up in Pittsburgh and went to Valley Forge Christian College where I met my wonderful wife, Niki.  We have 3 amazing children.  I love spending time with the family, music, Apple computers, traveling (especially to the beach), and photography.  I’m a huge fan of black coffee and dark chocolate.  I enjoy being part of the team at Lifetree because I love seeing people live up to their fullest potential with God – growing from root to fruit!  My favorite passage is Psalm 40:1-3…it’s the story of death that is in this world but how there’s true life with God and God alone! You can contact Kevin here.

André Mauerman: Pastor of Spiritual Development
I grew up in Youngstown, Ohio until I left there to attend Valley Forge Christian College, where I graduated.  My wife Kari and I have three wonderful children. I love playing and watching basketball, reading a good book, and listening to music.  My favorite passage in Scripture is Philippians 2:3-5: “Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too. You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had.” You can contact André here.

Kari Mauerman: Pastor of Spiritual Development
I’m a Jersey girl, born and raised. At Valley Forge Christian College, I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Theology, while majoring in Youth Ministry and minoring in Marriage and Family Therapy. The great loves of my life are André, our three children, the beach, and Duke basketball. My favorite verses from Scripture are 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 “My grace is enough; it’s all you need. My strength comes into its own in your weakness….And so the weaker I get, the stronger I become.”

Anna-staff Anna Greco: TreeHouse Kids Director
I am a proud army brat.  I had the great privilege of living in Europe in my younger years and all over America throughout my life.  Still today, one of my favorite things to do is take pictures of and enjoy all the beautiful and diverse sites.  I also love good food and coaching soccer.  My favorite thing to do is hang out with my husband and 3 awesome kids.  I graduated from Eastern University with a degree in Elementary Education and love working with the children of Lifetree.  One of the most encouraging verses in the Bible to me is, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” 2 Cr 12:9

Niki-Staff Niki Holt: Music Director
I grew up in Syracuse, NY, then went to VFCC after high school where I met Kevin. We have been married since 2000, and have lived in Jersey ever since, adding 3 beautiful girls to our family, working with teenagers, playing worship music, and church planting. Aside from music, education is a huge passion of mine. Currently, I work with special needs children at Sharon Elementary School.  I love to travel, read, write, hike, go to the beach, and spend time with my family. Life is an adventure, and I am loving the path God is leading us on! My favorite passage in Scripture is: “Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek His will in all you do, and He will show you which path to take.” Proverbs 3:5-6

 Shaina Ciaccio  Shaina Ciaccio: Administrator
I grew up in Hamilton and went to College of New Jersey for my Bachelor’s and Villanova University for my Master’s Degree. I met my husband, Anthony, down in Ocean City, NJ, and God blessed us with the most incredible miracle in our lives, our son Anthony.  My favorite things to do are to drink good coffee, read books, run and also eat desserts (the last two may not always mesh well together!) Lifetree has been there for me during a very hard time in my life and I feel beyond humbled to be a part of this incredible team. I have a lot of favorites verses, but if I had to pick just one, it would be  “Those who plant in tears will harvest with shouts of joy. They weep as they go to plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the harvest.” Psalms 126:5-6
