ABOUT BREESPORT BAPTIST CHURCH
1867. 150 years. Six generations. What do all these numbers have in common? Breesport Baptist Church was established as a church plant from Horseheads First Baptist Church in 1867. That means that we have existed as a local Bible believing, Gospel preaching church, for over 150 years now. That's six generations of ministry in this community.

ADMINISTRATOR, TWIN TIERS CHRISTIAN ACADEMY
Cary has been serving at TTCA since 1990. After graduating from Cedarville University with a degree in mathematics and secondary education, he was hired to teach math at TTCA. He continued in that position until 1996 when, at that time, he was hired as the school’s administrator.
