Meet Our Pastor
Pastor John Partridge graduated from Akron's Kenmore High School, then earned a Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering from Ohio Northern University.
After forty years of swearing that he would never be a pastor, and after working thirteen years as an electrical engineer, John heard a call to the ministry and began as a student local pastor in 2004. John graduated from Ashland Theological Seminary in 2008 and has previously served the congregations of Johnsville Grace United Methodist Church in Shauck, Ohio, Steam Corners United Methodist Church in Lexington, Ohio and Barnesville First United Methodist Church in Barnesville, Ohio.
Pastor John is has been married to his lovely wife, Patti for 25 years, they have a daughter at Kent State, and sons at Ohio University, and in the Marine Corps.
John has a passion of ministry, missions, and sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ and hopes that you will join us on this exciting adventure.
