Meet Our Pastor, the Rev. Edward Livingston

Reverend Edward Livingston is an ordained minister who has had a wide variety of experiences.  His past experiences have given him the insight and skills we believe make him the perfect spiritual leader to help move Dryland forward in our mission and purpose.

 

He attended the Lutheran Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, PA from 2004 – 2007 and obtained his Masters in Divinity.  He was ordained on November 14, 2010.  His most recent congregation prior to accepting the call at Dryland UCC was serving the Armenian Martyrs Congregational Church in Havertown, PA as an interim minister, 2017 – 2019. He has helped this congregation improve their administrative accountability, update financial standards, helped them move forward with community outreach, and organized multiple discovery forums to prepare for a settled pastor.  During his time there, membership grew for the first time in seven years.

Prior employment includes the Associate Pastor for Living Water UCC in Philadelphia, PA from 2014-2017, which was a part time position.  He served as the Congregation-based Community Organizer and then the Executive Director for the Camden Churches Organized for People from 2008 – 2017.

 

He has been active within the United Church of Christ Penn Southeast Conference.  In that conference, he has served as the Vice Moderator, Chair of the Personnel Committee, and as a member of their Justice and Witness Mission Team. 

 

His other community-based involvement includes being a member of the Philadelphia Association Executive Committee, Coordinator of the regional Religious Leaders Council of Greater Philadelphia, and a member of the Armenian Inter-Communal Committee of Philadelphia.

Pastor Livingston and his wife, Rev. Emily Ann Livingston, who is also a UCC minister, have purchased a home in the Lehigh Valley and are wonderful additions to our community.
