Staff and Leadership
Our church thrives on a loving, enthusiastic, and supportive congregation but also a strong foundation of staff and volunteer team members. The team members listed below are responsible for meeting the spiritual needs of our congregation, communicating the good word, scheduling all events, and maintaining the facilities during the week.
We all look forward to getting to know you and serving you during worship services each Sunday.
Rev. Dr. Tim Duchesne has been the minister of our church since July 2019.
He has been a United Methodist minister since 1998 and is married to Rev. Dr. Suzanne Duchesne PH.D, who is also an ordained Elder in the Eastern Pennsylvania United Methodist Conference and is serving as the pastor for Perkasie United Methodist Church.
Rev. Tim has had the honor of serving seven churches in Eastern Pennsylvania and Delaware with an average Sunday worship attendance ranging from 50-280 people. These churches have primarily been suburban and mainline inter-generational congregations who worshipped with styles ranging from blended to highly sacramental to contemporary.
Tim currently serves on the Congregational Development Team for the conference and has extensive training in Appreciative Approach to ministry, which focuses on helping churches discover what is life giving, in order that they may design, develop and implement desired ministries for sustainable church growth. He is also a board member of Kirby Smith Associates and The Methodist Services, Home for Children.
