Meet Our Pastor- Jim Penuel
 
 
                Hello, I am Pastor Jim Penuel.  I was born and raised on Maryland’s Eastern shore and have loved the Delmarva Peninsula my entire life.  Bridgeville is such a wonderful community and I am blessed to serve as Pastor here at Union.  I have faithfully served my God and the United Methodist Church for 12 years of full-time ministry, not including my seminary and internship experiences.  I was commissioned as provisional candidate for elder’s in 2012 and Ordained in 2015.  My Greatest passions in ministry include: building relationships within a community, making whatever church I service a true “community partner” that becomes an integral part of the lifeblood of the community, building connections and partnerships with other local churches, ministering to youth and young families, and creating discipleship programs.  I also enjoy teaching bible studies, using technology in ministry, ministering to senior adults, worship, preaching, and music ministry.
Just a few of my favorite hobbies include playing guitar, and bass, tinkering with technology, & going to the beach and fishing (my wife is much better at fishing than I), and playing with my four and two year old daughters. I am happily married to the love of my life and my partner in ministry Amber since September 2013. We have two children Lily who is 4, and Lydia who is 2.
