Jay McDermond, Senior Pastor

Jay McDermond was born and raised in Perry County, PA (please don’t hold that against him) and has lived in England, Kenya, and Scotland. He recently left higher education where he taught for 29 years. He is married to Wanda Thuma-McDermond, and they have two adult sons, Malcolm and Duncan. Jay’s hobbies include collecting milk bottles, which he is good at, hunting ducks and geese, which he is bad at, and golf, which he is even worse at. From August through May, you will find him watching Barclay Premier League (English) soccer more than he probably should.
