Our current Board of Directors
BRUCE BROOKS – Vice-Moderator / Lay Delegate
My spouse and I have been attending New Light for about 15 years. I have been New Light’s Lay Delegate and attended the last 3 General Conferences in that role. I also completed the L.E.A.D. program offered through MCC. That training has been a great benefit to me personally and as a member of NL’s Board of Directors. New Light and MCC has been a place of spiritual growth for me and Charlie. We are blessed to call it our church home.
HAROLD GRESS – Treasurer / Lay Delegate
I’ve attended New Light since the church was formed in 1996, except for a brief hiatus, and have been a member since 2000. I’ve served on the Board of Directors as Secretary, Secretary/Treasurer, and am currently the Treasurer. I enjoy the family atmosphere at New Light and can’t imagine worshipping anywhere else. When I suddenly lost my first partner in 2009, the church was a great support – I don’t know how I would have made it through that period without my church family. I’ve attended several UFMCC Network gatherings and the General Conference in 2010 in Acapulco. I live an hour away from Hagerstown in Pennsylvania on my family farm with my current partner and two dogs. My partner’s 8 year old son visits us every weekend. 2015 was a year of personal transition – after losing my job of 20 years, I recently started a new position at Chambersburg Hospital as a Financial Systems Analyst. I look forward to the next chapter in New Light’s journey.
DAVID WASHINGTON – Secretary
After meeting Reverend Tory Perry at New Light MCC in Hagerstown, I was lead to MCC Baltimore and became a member of UFMCC. I have been a follower and believe of Christ since being healed of cancer at the age of 15. As a result of that miracle, I see being a servant as the greatest gift I have to offer and have been given the gift to offer. Unconditional love, compassion, empathy, hospitality and generosity are what I hope to share through being a Board and Church member.
