Our Pastor

Jonathan Hauze

Jonathan was called to be our pastor in 2004, after completing his theological studies at Harvard Divinity School. He was raised in the United Church of Christ and was ordained at Old South Church in Boston. Prior to graduate school, Jonathan earned his B.A. in Religion at Swarthmore College. Between college and seminary he spent three years happily surrounded by books, working for one year at the finest independent bookstore in St. Paul, Minnesota, and spending two years working at the Pappas Law Library at Boston University. During the latter stretch, his wife Liza earned her M.S.W. at the Boston University School of Social Work.

Jonathan is married to his high school sweetheart, Liza, who hails from New Hampshire. Jonathan and Liza have three exuberant children - Annie, Sam, and Charlie. Much of their leisure time is therefore devoted to playing superheroes, pouring glasses of milk, creating paper costumes for various action figures, and generally being silly. Jonathan's particular passions include reading, playing guitar, baking bread, learning about birds, following baseball, shelling pistachios, and playing tennis and chess. If you ask him nicely, he might sing a number from The Music Man.

You'll usually find Jonathan at church on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, but it's a good idea to call first since his schedule can be unpredictable. The church phone is 610-363-7285, or click here to e-mail Jonathan.
