About Me


I am the Lead Pastor of the Cortland United Methodist Church. I’ve been a pastor for 28 years and began serving my current congregation two years ago. I hold a B.A. in Religion from Houghton College and an M.Div. from Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School.I’ve been married to the love of my life for 30 years and am the proud father of three children.


I believe that the Christian life is exciting, alive and powerful, and that the love of God expressed in Jesus Christ is able to transform, not only individual lives, but communities, regions and the world. We live in exciting times when our faith can intersect with the issues and challenges of the world around us and reveal the path to freedom and life within them.


I look forward to what will unfold as we share the journey together and as we think about what we believe and faithfully reflect on what we think.I welcome your comments on my posts. Should you like to contact me, you can email me at chuck@thinkingfaithcafe.com
