Mill City Assembly of God - A Place Where You Belong

Mill City Assembly of God sets in the beautiful Endless Mountains of Pennsylvania. Our church is located on Route 307 on the edge of Mill City.

As you drive in the driveway you can see the creative power of our wonderful God – the property sets on 22 acres and is surrounded by trees and has a stream flowing on property. Sometimes you are privileged to see bunny rabbits, deer, and turtles slowly making their way to the stream.

Our building is handicap accessible and it offers a carport where you can be let off and go directly into the building. The sanctuary has lots of natural light, its laminated arches and beams
make the vaulted ceiling unique.

Sunday morning worship is a mix of traditional and contemporary music. Very important elements of our worship include singing, Scripture reading, preaching/teaching, and prayer. We are a church that is joyful and loves to celebrate people coming to know Christ as their Savior and growing in their walk with the LORD.

We share a “family like” atmosphere and we have been called to be a place of hope for all. We hope you will visit with us and find your place here with us – The place where you belong!

News and Events



Pastors Jim & Dorothy Rugg

Senior & Associate Pastor

Rev. James G. Rugg & Rev. Dorothy Rugg are Ordained Ministers with the Assemblies of God. They celebrate over 41 years of marriage, have three beautiful daughters, two wonderful sons in law and four precious grandchildren.


Pastor John VanHouten Jr

Men's Ministry Leader

John is married to Melissa and has 3 children, Johnny, Noah and Arwen. His family is important to him and he is proud of them. John received his schooling through South Eastern University and is a licensed minister with the Assemblies of God. He is the Men’s rep for the Northeast section as well. John has served the church through Bible Studies, Sunday School teacher, VBS helper, preached sermons, and is the Men’s Ministry leader.

John enjoys working with the men in Men’s Ministry and he believes that men’s ministry is more than a Saturday morning breakfast – whether they are laboring outside on the church property, building sets for VBS or decorations, having campfires, or studying God’s Word together and praying together- John sees the importance of working together and growing together. He believes that as men grow in their walk with the LORD then they in turn will help their family and friends to grow in the things of God. John believes it is important to reach men with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

One of his favorite verses is “Be alert and on your guard; stand firm in your faith (your conviction respecting man’s relationship to God and divine things, keeping the trust and holy fervor born of faith and a part of it). Act like men and be courageous; grow in strength!” 1 Corinthians 16:13 Amplified


Nicole Thurman - CE Rep

Children's Ministries

My adventure in children’s ministries began at an early age helping my parents as they pastored a home missions church in Silver Creek, NY. I attended Messiah College where I earned a B.S. in Elementary Education. I worked in the inner city of Baltimore until I married my husband, Dan in 2000. When we started our family, we moved back to Mill City, PA and have been involved in children’s ministry ever since.

We have lead Wednesday kids groups, worked in the nursery, led Vacation Bible Schools and taught Sunday School and Junior Church classes.

My passion for Children’s Ministry comes from the verses found in Matthew 19:14-15 “But Jesus said, “Let the children come to Me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children.” And He placed His hands on their heads and blessed them before He left.” My desire is that children know they can come to Jesus; that He has plans and purposes for their lives. I want children and their families to feel encouraged in their development of their faith. I desire for the blessing and favor of God be upon our children.


Ken & Wendy Mickle

Youth Ministry

Ken & Wendy have a vision to activate tweens and teens to walk in the destiny that God intended for them. They desire to mentor young disciples who will bring the kingdom of God into all aspects of their lives by building personal relationships with the youth and imparting to them spiritual gifts.

Ken has served the church as a board member, working with Royal Rangers, VBS worker and has traveled to Mexico on a missions trip. Wendy’s experience has been helping with VBS, a Prims teacher, youth worker, adult Bible Study teacher, preached sermons. She is currently a middles school Math teacher, having taught in public schools for approximately fifteen years. Wendy has also trained for ministry through Global Awakening. Ken and Wendy foresee equipping the youth to walk in a supernatural lifestyle; just as Jesus did.
