Rev Scott, Meagan and Leopold Leo Marsh.heic

They have arrived

“Pastor Scott, Meagan, and Leo Marsh are excited to be appointed to Coldwater UMC. Pastor Scott has a bachelor’s degree from WMU in Environmental Studies and Earth Science, and a Master of Divinity from Garrett Evangelical Theological Seminary. Meagan has a bachelor’s degree from GVSU in History and Anthropology. They welcomed Leo into their family in Aug of 2021 and life hasn’t been the same since. Scott enjoys a number of hobbies: homebrewing beer, woodworking, gardening, backpacking and cooking. Meagan is an active reader, Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter fan, and loves going to the county fair. The Marsh family also includes their corgi mix Rori, and a Siamese cat named Winnifred. 

 

Scott felt a call into ministry in college and after working as a Youth Director and as a Assistant Pastor at the WMU Wesley Foundation. He then attended seminary where he studied Greek, won an award for a paper on creation care, and discovered a passion for preaching Liberation Theology. The Marsh family is affirming and reconciling, believing firmly in the abundant love of God for all people, created in love by love and for love. The Marsh family is also committed to the work of ANTI racism, and environmental justice. 

 

Scott serves on the MI Conference UMC Board of Young People’s Ministry as Co-Chair and was the board chair of the CMU Wesley Foundation with his term ending this June. Scott is currently writing his ordination paperwork and seeks to be an Elder in Full Connection by next summer.

 

They are so excited to meet all of you! They pray that God can use their gifts, graces, and skills to lead our congregation and help build the “Kin-dom” of God here. 

 

May peace be with you.”

 

Thank you, 

Julie
