We are pleased to announce that we have signed a call agreement with a designated interim pastor to serve our churches (Calvary & Pennsburg UCC) in our shared ministry! The term is for one-year, at ¾ time, with the intent to re-evaluate our agreement at that time to either extend the term for an additional year, part ways, or offer a settled position to the designated pastor.
Rev. David R. Brumbaugh, “Pastor Dave”, will be leading us in our shared ministry beginning July 1, 2021. He is currently residing in Tallmadge, OH where he is the pastor at First Congregational Church of Tallmadge. He needs to close out his commitments and current agreement there, as well as sell his home and find a place to live in PA. He has historical ties to our area, as he attended Fleetwood High School, Kutztown University, Lehigh University, and Princeton Theological Seminary. Pastor Dave served several churches in Pennsylvanian towns including Myerstown, Denver, Holland and Pottsville over his 34 years since ordainment. He even interviewed as a potential pastor at Calvary about 25 years ago.
Pastor Dave and his wife, Brenda Fidler, are excited to move to our area once again, and be a part of our churches. We are excited to welcome them and hope you will be, too.
