Hi, I'm Kerry
I'm a pastor in the Eastern Pennsylvania Conference of The United Methodist Church.
I earned a BA in Chemistry from Grinnell College in 1994
and a M.Div from Lancaster Theological Seminary in 2001.
I was ordained an elder in The UMC in 2005.
I ride a 1983 Suzuki GS 650 GL.
I run a half marathon every other year.
I read a lot of books.
I am happily married to Melissa and our daughter L. was born in 2003. L. got her good looks from me because Melissa still has hers.
I served the West Lawn United Methodist Church as POYAYAM from 2002 to 2006.
(POYAYAM is an ancient Aramaic word that means Pastor Of Youth And Young Adult Ministries)
After that I served as pastor of the Spring City United Methodist Church from 2006 to 2011.
(my sermons from that era can be found at lighthouseonthehill.blogspot.com)
I served as pastor of the Campbelltown United Methodist Church from 2011 to 2013.
In 2013 I accepted the bishop's appointment to serve "on loan" as pastor of First United Methodist Church, in Barboursville, West Virginia, beginning October 1, 2013.
And this is my blog.
And you're reading it.
Don't read it quietly! Leave a comment!
And knock 'em alive :)
I love you and there's nothing you can do about it
