Pastoral Candidate-Dave Swanson
The Pastoral Search Committee is pleased to announce our candidate for the PMC pastoral position, David Swanson. Dave grew up in the Philadelphia area and went to Gordon College, where he met his wife, Caren; they have an eight year-old daughter, Clara. He is currently finishing his Master of Divinity degree at Duke Divinity School in Durham, North Carolina and is an active member at Chapel Hill Mennonite Fellowship. Dave and Caren connected with the Mennonite church when they joined a church in rural Vermont, and it was through that experience that Dave felt called to become a pastor. In addition to serving as an interim pastor and a youth pastor, Dave’s past work experience includes nearly a decade of carpentry and small-scale farming.
After a Skype interview and a weekend spent with Dave, and his family, as well as many questions asked and answered by him and us, we have decided to invite Dave to candidate at PMC. We believe that Dave is a fantastic fit for Pittsburgh Mennonite Church. His enthusiasm for PMC is unmatched; Dave is attracted to our sense of community and the energy and regrowth we are currently experiencing as a congregation. We think that Dave is the perfect person to help us engage with the Swissvale community and to expand our building usage. His unique pastoral internship running a community garden for a church in North Carolina makes him well equipped to help with our garden outreach. We believe that his warm and welcoming persona will draw in visitors and help congregants to feel accepted and affirmed, wherever they are in their faith journey. Dave’s interests in theology, politics, literature, and current events, his commitment to Anabaptist principles and his Christ-centered approach all work together to make for interesting and meaningful sermons. In all of our interactions with Dave, his sincerity and honesty have been heartfelt, and we think that he’s the best candidate for the position.See more PMC news »
