"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid."

Pastor Jody Gunn grew up in the Pacific Northwest.  She loves those mountains and cool walks on the Oregon Coast, but life has a way of happening in ways you least expect.  God took her on an adventure she was expecting to take, but on a different timeline than her own and to a place she never thought she would end up.  She has now called Maryland her home for the last 30 years.  She and her husband, Eric live on the Eastern Shore of MD, love watching the birds that use the Atlantic Flyway each year, and small town living.  She holds a BS in School and Community Health from the University of Oregon (Go Ducks!) and completed her MDiv in 2017 from Bethany Theological Seminary.  She was licensed in 1993 and ordained in 2005 in the Church of the Brethren.  Pastor Jody loves to connect people to the God who loves them and help them discover their gifts to live out the calling of God in their life.  Pastor Jody and Eric have two young adult children Ben (26) who lives in GA and Amelia (22) who is serving in Belfast, N. Ireland as a BVSer.  Pastor Jody currently serves the Bethany Church of the Brethren in Farmington, DE.  Since their kids are no longer at home they have added Leo the cat to their home and 8 chickens, which gives them some laughs as well as something to do in their spare time.
