Dennis has extensive experience ministering to children and youth, recruiting volunteer teachers, selecting curriculum, leading Vacation Bible Schools, participating in Junior and Senior High youth groups, and facilitating adult Bible studies.
In his role as interim DCE, Dennis will oversee the Christian Education program and we anticipate that he will be part of our staff through the end of January 2015 (3 months).
A graduate of Seton Hall University with a Master’s of Divinity, Dennis began his church service as an ordained priest in the Roman Catholic Church, serving in the Diocese of Worcester from 1990 to 2003. Though raised in the Roman Catholic tradition, Dennis felt called to the Protestant faith many years ago as his former church was moving in a different direction. Dennis believes in a fully inclusive church community.
Dennis is married to Michelle O’Malley, a woman he happily calls “the love of his life.” They have been married for 11 years. Please join us in welcoming Dennis to Sudbury UMC!
