Dan Gerhard
Shepherd of Transition
Dan is a retired UM pastor who was invited to provide pastoral oversight of Bay View United Methodist Church until July 1, 2020, when our new pastor will join us to serve this church. Thus, Dan became our “Shepherd of Transition”, a very non-traditional title within The United Methodist Church.
Dan writes:
It is my joy to work with the wonderful folks at Bay View in a different capacity for these six months. Even after my long history with Bay View, I am daily surprised at the number of members who step forward to help with the various tasks of keeping a church functioning well and to grow during this interim period between pastors.
