Our Staff

I am Ernest Eby. I serve as Director and am very happy to work alongside my wife Cathy, and daughters Carmen and Heidi. We enjoy outdoor activities, visiting historical places, reading books, and socializing with friends from a variety of cultures. Most of all, we enjoy seeing people come to know and love their Creator.


Hello. My name is Shawn Miller. I serve with the Board of Directors and I am currently a student at Penn State University. I am working on a Graduate program to become a Family Nurse Practitioner. I help manage our new study space and other campus programs. I am excited to be able to be involved in a campus ministry while being a student myself.

Hi, my name is Amy Beachy. I’ve lived in State College now for two years. Most of my contribution is behind-the-scenes work of designing flyers and posters for our classes and events, which fits into my love for art work. I’m really excited about partnering with Shawn in this work. We are getting married in December, Lord willing!


My name is Truman Eby. I serve with the Board of Directors and have been involved in the development of the LifeQuest organization from its beginning. I recently moved to State College to become more involved. I find it energizing to engage questions surrounding truth, faith, and the teachings of Jesus. I am fascinated with physics, chemistry, and other natural sciences. I self-employ as a home-repair handyman and enjoy combining work, social life, and spiritual pursuits.


My name is Grant Bennett. I live near Chambersburg, PA. I work with LifeQuest a couple days of the week. I am involved with the evening study space, and advertising for the various events and classes we hold on campus. Having been a student myself for a significant time, I can well relate to the stresses and fears that most students experience.


My name is Tara Foster. Chambersburg, PA, is home for me and my 20-year-old son Ethan. Our furry compan-ion is his pit bull Athena. I enjoy the outdoors, reading, daily humor, learning something new, and watching other people learn. I help with the evening study space and I am teaching a variety of English (ESL) classes.



Hi I’m Clarissa Ramer. I grew up in Oklahoma and my parents now live in Missouri, so that is currently my home base. Some interests of mine are cultures, people, and seeing or doing new things. I teach the beginner’s English (ESL) class, and am involved in the international friendship program.


Hi, I am Hosanna Young, I help out at the Study Space on Tuesday nights and otherwise as needed. I did EMT school last year and I am now looking forward to actually getting on an ambulance to work. Next year, I plan to start college at Lock Haven Univerisity. I want to become a rural doctor, so I will begin with Pre-med biology studies. Jesus is my best Friend.  


We are Ben and Lois Friesen from Lewisburg, PA. We enjoy volunteering our Thursday evenings at LifeQuest. We find it fulfilling and refreshing to meet students from various states and countries. It’s such a privilege and blessing to have this opportunity.
