“If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.”
1 Peter 4:11
My name is Dan Hrach (pronounced ‘rock’) and I have been pastor of Summit since July 10, 2012. I am truly excited to be ministering with this wonderful church family – and we would love to have you come and see what God is doing at Summit! As a part of being in God’s great church family we continue to walk in – shine out – and live as the light of Jesus Christ to not only our church family, but throughout the community and in the world around us. I believe you will discover this as you visit us at Summit. Come and be blessed! See you soon!

Leslie Marangoni is a native of Flint Hill, Virginia, and holds music degrees from University of Mary Washington and Bowling Green State University (Ohio). Although she aspired to life in academia, God had different plans; as a result, Leslie has worked in church music since 2000. Since marrying Guy and moving to Stafford in 2004, Leslie has served as organist and accompanist at several area churches, including Falmouth Baptist, St. Peter’s Lutheran, Trinity Episcopal, and Hope Presbyterian (Fredericksburg). She happily landed at Summit in September 2021, and discovered that Summit offers the loving, welcoming church family for which she has yearned. When she’s not banging on random keyboard instruments, singing to herself, or causing the choir to wonder what she’ll do next, Leslie studies Isshinryu karate, chases her kids around, digs in her garden, and cooks.
