OUR STAFF

MINISTER

Rev. Randy Covey.
Our pastor, Rev. Randy Covey, came to us in February 2013, bringing with him a history of ministry in both small and larger congregations of the United Church, as well as several years of interfaith chaplaincy in a long term care facility. His formal education includes a Master of Divinity degree from Emmanuel College, University of Toronto. He loves preaching and has a passion for pastoral care, especially as seen in a nurturing community of faith in Jesus Christ that strives to grow through the acceptance, and love of people of all ages and stages of belief. He enjoys engaging people in worship and study, offering children’s time during regular worship, confirmation classes to the youth and bible study to those who wish to look at faith through both traditional and contemporary theological approaches.

Pastor Randy's Office Schedule:
Office hours by appointment; call (519) 482-9553,  or email (CLICK HERE) or leave a message at the church office (voice mail is checked daily).

Days off:
Regular time off is Friday and Saturday.   Randy will make adjustments if necessary. 

CHILDREN AND YOUTH MINISTER

Kathy Douglas
Kathy Douglas settled into full time ministry as the Huron Perth Presbytery Youth Minister in 2008.  This has been a good fit for Kathy as a Diaconal minister called to Christian Education, Social Justice and Pastoral care and her work with the Presbytery has been exciting and meaningful.  
In January of 2015, Kathy entered into a relationship with Clinton United Church as their Children and Youth Minister offering 10 hours work a week.  Coming to know the youth and children of this faith community has been a pleasure.  Building a faith community around families is key to ministry in the Christian church.  Relationships are where we learn, grow and come to know the presence of God.

"The model of my ministry has offered me a few significant positive results in United Church Ministry.
