Our New Pastor

On Sunday, 1 July 2012, the Deer Creek Charge will welcome its new pastor, Shannon Sullivan. She is a recent graduate from Drew Theological School in Madison, N.J. She is excited to be returning home to Harford County, where she grew up and graduated from North Harford High School. Her dream was to serve a church in Harford County–and now, that dream will become a reality.

Her passions include social justice, writing creative liturgy and sermons, interfaith dialogue, missions, and incorporating all the senses in worship. As a seminarian, she served in a variety of settings, most recently as chaplain in the behavioral health unit of a New Jersey hospital. She has also served the General Church through working with Methodist Federation for Social Action and Reconciling Ministries Network. She recently had the opportunity to volunteer with MFSA for the 2012 General Conference of the United Methodist Church in Tampa, Florida.

Her mother, Rev. Melissa McDade, is also a pastor. Sullivan will be getting married in October 2012 to Aaron Harrington.
