HAROLD GRESS – Treasurer 

I have attended New Light since the church was formed in 1996, except for a brief hiatus, and have been a member since 2000. I have served on the Board of Directors as Secretary, Secretary/Treasurer, and am currently the Treasurer. I enjoy the family atmosphere at New Light and cannot imagine worshipping anywhere else. When I suddenly lost my first partner in 2009 and my second partner in 2018, the church was a great support – I do not know how I would have made it through either period without my church family. I have attended several UFMCC Network gatherings and the General Conference in 2010 in Acapulco and Orlando in 2019. I live an hour away from Hagerstown in Pennsylvania on my family farm with my Mini Aussie Shepherd, Bruiser. My partner’s 12-year-old son visits several days a week. I retired from my Healthcare Financial Analyst career in January of 2020.  I continue as an Adjunct Professor at Wilson College in Chambersburg where I teach computer classes.   I established and have served as lead for our livestreaming ministry which has been essential during this time when we cannot meet in person.  I look forward to the next chapter in New Light’s journey.

CONNIE BAUER – Clerk (Info to come)


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.
