The Congregation has called the Reverend Paul Eyer to be our new settled pastor. Here is a video introduction:
Listen to the sermon he gave on the Sunday he met the congregation.
Paul comes to us with many skills and varied life experiences. He was an attorney in his first career. He graduated from George Washington University in 1984 with a Juris Doctor degree and he worked in that field in his law practice, and as a legislative assistant to U.S. Senator David L. Boren in Washington D.C. While Paul chose to study law, his heart was never far from the church. He grew up in a family that was active in the church and even as a teenager he wondered how he could pursue a life of public service. That goal of service to others led Paul to enter the Lancaster Theological Seminary where he earned his Master of Divinity in 2006. While he was in seminary, he met his lovely wife, Jackie, who is also a UCC pastor in Pennsylvania.
Paul was a much-loved pastor at St Luke’s United Church of Christ in Lancaster, PA. where he served for four years. Since 2010, he has served as the Director of Alumni/ae and Church Relations at the Lancaster Theological Seminary where he is very successful in building financial support for the seminary. While there, he also offers his support and guidance to the seminary students and continues to be a guest preacher at area churches.
