Pastors & Church Staff

Dan Krall

Senior Pastor

Pastor Dan Krall grew up in Lebanon, PA. Jesus saved him at the age of 8, but his passion for the Lord truly ignited when he was in his early 20s. He is a graduate of Lancaster Bible College. Prior to working in vocational ministry, Daniel served in multiple ministry contexts and worked as a UPS driver. Together, with his wife of 9 years, Lynnea, they adopted 2 daughters through foster care, Miriam and Natalie, and have 1 biological son, Lewis. They are new residents of Annville, PA after living all of their married life in Lancaster City. He has been serving as an elder in the BFC for 4 years, serving with Grace BFC of Steelton, as well as on the transitional leadership team for Christ Alone Fellowship in Lancaster city. In addition to his elder work with Ephrata, he can often be found on campus at LBC, working with our young adults, overseeing our Sunday school and worship ministries, encouraging our senior saints, and mentoring younger men in the faith. He loves nature, his family, and reading a good book. His greatest passion is to see the Gospel of Jesus lived out practically in everyday life.

Ammie Stark

Administrative Assistant

Ammie Stark grew up in Stevens, Pa. She was introduced to the Gospel at 4 years old coming home from Ephrata Bible Fellowship Church on Easter Sunday by her grandmother. She understood the concept of Jesus’ sacrifice but really only began to realize how much she needed Jesus to save her in her late teens.  Since then, Ammie has been on a journey getting to know God and His Word in a more intimate way. Ammie resides in Adamstown, PA with her husband of 26 years, Karl.  They have 4 boys, Gavin, Avery, Chase and Reilly. They also share their living space with 2 (and a half) dogs…Milo, Mazzy and Millie and a new inhabitant, a cat named Cooper.  
Ammie’s passion in and out side of the church is Youth Ministry.  She volunteers for a non-profit (which her mother-in-law founded) called 4 Our Kids, she helps out with the Ephrata Area Youth Aid Panel as a Community Service Mentor, and she and her husband, Karl, are Youth Leaders at EBFC.  She also enjoys a yearly stint as MC for The Adamstown Community Days Festival. One of Ammie's favorite Bible verses is, 2 Corinthians 5:17.

Garth Bulgrien

Bookkeeper-Financial Assistant

Garth Bulgrien grew up on a farm in Michigan. He participated in an active youth group in a United Methodist church, but was not sure of his salvation until the age of 18. He and Kathy were married in 1976 and were active at Baptist churches in the Detroit area until they and their three children relocated to Ephrata in 1988 after his employer, Ford, purchased New Holland farm equipment from Sperry. They started attending Ephrata Bible Fellowship Church a few months later after visiting several other churches in the area. Garth retired in 2019 after 41 years of engineering Ford, New Holland, and Case-IH tractors. At EBFC he has served as a deacon and a vocalist on the worship team for many years. When he is not working on some project or doing maintenance at the church, you might find him riding a roller coaster, or watching a tractor pull, or watching a Marvel movie!
