My name is Pastor Dan, I joined this active and growing congregation in 2018.
Bethany United Methodist Church is a group of friendly, family oriented people who have discovered the joy of
serving others and serving God.
I find that to be a pastor takes time and involves building trust. This means getting to know each other and
eventually exploring what God may be doing in our lives together. In the
meanwhile, it can be a bit of a roller coaster. Why is
that? For some, there are expectations that I will be like the Pastor
leaving; for others, there can be hopes that I won’t be. Where ever you may find yourself in this spectrum, I would
ask that you keep me and my family in your prayers.
about us: I have a wife, Denise, and two adult children. My daughter
is currently attending St. Martin’s University and my son is in the process to become an
electrician. In addition, my wife’s mother lives in Lacey and requires
a fair amount of care. I have been serving God through the United
Methodist church for close to forty years. It is my conviction that
God continues to move in our world and in each of our lives. I hope
that in the time we share together, you too will become all the more convinced of this as
peace, Pastor Dan
(As of July 1, 2019, Pastor Dan has been transferred
to another church. He and his family have contributed to the successful history of Bethany UMC and they will be
missed by all.)
