Meet our pastor!
Rev. Daniel Schroeder
Rev. Dan Schroeder hails originally from southwest Indiana (Posey County). He is a life-long member of the United Church of Christ. His undergraduate work was in music education and he taught choral and general music for one year before acting on a call to ministry and entering Eden Theological Seminary in Webster Groves, Missouri. He was ordained in 1981.
Dan served congregations in Westphalia and Evansville, Indiana and in Granby, Connecticut over a period of thirty years. He has since moved to transitional ministry, serving first on the staff of the Central Atlantic Conference of the UCC, resourcing over fifty churches in New Jersey and Delaware. Since then he has served as an intentional interim for ELCA (Lutheran) and the PCUSA (Presbyterian) congregations in New Jersey.
With his wife Jennifer, who recently retired from teaching in the Dover, New Jersey school system, he celebrates a family that includes two sons, a daughter in law, three grandchildren and assorted pets. Dan relaxes with classical music, a wood shop, and with his primary hobby – the restoration of antique pendulum clocks.
