alan-and-familyRev. Alan R. Rudnick

I grew up in a dynamic church in Gaithersburg, MD and felt the calling to pastoral ministry during my teenage years. I was guided by supportive pastoral mentors who help shape my faith and leadership gifts. I attended and graduated from Eastern University and Palmer Theological Seminary. From 2010-2011, I was a Lewis Fellow with Lewis Center for Church Leadership at Wesley Theological Seminary. In addition to my passion for ministry, I also have a passion for writing. In 2012 I wrote the book, “The Work of the Associate Pastor” published by Judson Press. I’ve also written for the Syracuse Post-Standard, Albany Times Union, The Christian Century, Associated Baptist Press, Baptist News Global, Baptist Standard, Ministry Matters,, Christian Ethics, and The Fund of Theological Education. I’m currently a doctoral student in La Salle University’s Doctor of Theology program. My wife Christine and I have three children: Rowan, Evangeline, and Cillian.

My dream for DeWitt Community Church is to be a place of vibrant discipleship, growth, service, hospitality, and support. As we walk together in the calling of Christ, I pray that we can seek to be a beacon of light in our community. I hope that we can grow in such a way that we make an impact in the lives of others.
