"I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing." - John 15:5
Rev. Angelee Benner-Smith
Our Pastor, The Rev. Angelee Benner-Smith, has served UCC East Goshen since 1993. Born and raised in Philadelphia, she earned her MDiv at Lancaster Theological Seminary and served in Connecticut and Bucks County prior to her call to UCCEG. Rev. Benner-Smith is the fourth pastor to serve here. During her ministry, our building took the shape that you see on the home page and below. We added an airy, open sanctuary in 2000 and more classrooms and meeting space a few years ago.
The day-to -day responsibilites of the office are managed by Jennifer Troutman. Jen has worked for various non-profits and colleges over the years and currently serves as Digital & Social Media Manager at Reformation Church in Media, PA, where she is also an active member.
Michael is our director of music ministry. He plays piano and organ and leads the singers and musicians on a weekly basis. We continue to source for additional singers and musicians to join our team. If you would like to join our team of talented musicians and signers, please feel free to contact us.
