A Note from our State Representative:

Dear Friends,

After pastoring for thirty years, including over fifteen years in Johnson City, NY, it’s my privilege to serve the pastors and people of the churches of this great Association. My primary focus is two fold. First, to foster healthy church ministry through consulting, training  and support ministries-as well as through an active program of ministries for men, women, youth, couples, and senior adults. Second, to come along side our pastors in order to provide encouragement and support, counseling and mentoring, providing resourcing and training opportunities.

Let me know how I can serve you,

Jim Vogel, NFIBC

Dr. Jim Vogel, State Representative

Empire State Fellowship

2293 Grand Central Ave.

Horseheads, NY 14845


Background info for the Vogels

Jim Vogel is the state representative of the Northeast Fellowship. He began this ministry in New York April 2012. He succeeded Craig Golden, a former pastor who served as the state representative since 1988. When Golden announced his plans to retire in 2012, he gave a personal recommendation, saying, “It would be a personal thrill to have a man of Dr. Vogel’s caliber to succeed me and be our representative for the Empire State Fellowship.” Jim formerly ministered as the associate national representative for the GARBC for five years.

In their previous ministry, the Vogels were assisting pastors and churches nationwide by providing counsel, instruction, and encouragement. Describing how this work changed his ministry outlook, Vogel said, “I think I have a better understanding of the breadth of ministry in our churches. I have a greater appreciation of the small-church pastor—as well as those in larger works.

“I love what I do—that’s why this new position is so appealing to me,” Vogel says. “I like encouraging and supporting our pastors and leaders. This is a right fit for us—we’ll continue to do these things in our new position.”

Vogel served in youth and senior pastorates for 30 years, and had earned a doctor of ministry degree from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. He was formerly the director of the Empire State Fellowship Talents For Christ program and was a member of the Empire State Fellowship Council of Ten. He also serves as a trustee of Baptist Bible College.  He recently compiled and edited a book on Pastoral Theology called, The Pastor A Guide for God’s Faithful Servant. Jeannie Vogel will continue her speaking and writing ministry, which includes her award-winning RBP book Accepting the Challenge: Leadership Lessons from the Life of Moses.

Jim Vogel is the fifth state representative for the group, succeeding Craig Golden (1988–2012), Russell Camp (1975–1987), Milo Thompson (1971–1975), and L. Duane Brown (1965–1970).
