Pastoral Staff

Senior Pastor

DSCN2912Andrew Diorio was born on March 3, 1990, in Plattsburgh, New York.  He grew up in Papillion, Nebraska, and has attended Midlands for most of his life.  In December of 2007, through the ministry of Midlands, Andrew came to trust in Christ as his Saviour.  It has been his desire to serve the Lord since that time.

After graduating high school, the Lord led Andrew to Heartland Baptist Bible College in Oklahoma City, where he graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Biblical Studies.  He also met his wife, Amanda, at the Oklahoma school.  He and Amanda enjoy parenting their three children, Peter, Amelia, and Emma and serving the Lord together at Midlands.  Andrew has been on staff as the Associate Pastor since May of 2013.  In February of 2019, the church voted to call Andrew as the next pastor to serve upon Pastor Lydick’s retirement in June of 2019.

Associate Pastor

Mick Huntley was born on May 2, 1990, in Omaha, Nebraska.  He grew up in Bellevue, Nebraska, right across the street from Midlands Bible Baptist Church.  In the spring of 2013, after graduating from the University of Nebraska Lincoln with a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education, Mick started attending Midlands regularly.  In the summer of 2015, Mick realized that he wasn’t saved and came to trust in Christ as his Saviour.  After getting his salvation settled, Mick felt called to the ministry and began waiting on the Lord for Him to open that door.  God opened that door in the spring of 2018 when Mick was given the opportunity to come on staff at Midlands.  He has been serving as the Associate Pastor since June of 2019.

Mick and his wife Abby were married January 3, 2015, and have two daughters:  Jane (age 3), and Charlotte (age 1).  Mick and Abby work together in the Teen Class and Junior Church.  Mick also serves as the music director.
