Know God, Love God, Serve God

Pastor Dan Whitford

Pastor Dan grew up in Janesville, Wisconsin and is excited to be serving close to home after being away for 20 years. Dan is a Licensed Local Pastor and has completed a third of his Course of Study. Before becoming a pastor, Dan was a truck driver for over 30 years. Prior to serving Evansville UMC, he served the Blue River and Avoca United Methodist Churches, and the Darian United Methodist Church. Dan’s wife Brenda is the pastor at the River of Life United Methodist Church in Beloit, and his daughter Liz is the pastor at the Columbus United Methodist Church.

I am passionate about reaching everyday people, to help them see and experience God in their everyday lives. I want everyone to feel welcomed, especially those who don’t feel that there is a place for them in church. I strive to be open and authentic as I share God’s love with the community.
