Our Leadership and Staff
“Pay careful attention to yourselves and to all the flock, in which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to care for the church of God, which he obtained with his own blood.”
Reverend Robert Potter
Our Interim Pastor Robert Potter (prefers Bob) grew up in West Hartford and Old Saybrook, Connecticut. A former professor and the Dean of Students at the University of Hartford, served as a consultant to several Connecticut churches, and was senior minister of the largest downtown, protestant city church in the Northeast. He has also served large churches in California, Florida, Massachusetts, and Vermont. His wife of almost 60 years Christina, gives leadership to americas largest housing program for seniors, the disabled, and low income families. Bob and Chris own Pineberry Farm in Wheelock Vt. where they live with their daughters and two sons (one of whom is also a pastor) as well as their grand and great grand children.
