Rev. Kerry O'Brien
Reverend Kerry O’Brien has been a minister since 1997. As a “second career” pastor, he has over 20 years of experience in the business world before going to seminary and becoming an ordained Elder in The United Methodist Church. He graduated from Garret-Evangelical Theological Seminary in 2003, and began his first full time appointment right afterwards, in Elkhart, IN. He was ordained in The United Methodist Church in 2006.
Pastor Kerry has served Indiana churches in Roselawn, Elkhart (Trinity), Kokomo (Main Street), Plymouth (Trinity), Richmond (Central), and most recently at Grace UMC in Rochester. He is originally from Hammond, IN.
Pastor Kerry has been married to his wife, Lynne, for 40 years. They have two children, two children-in-laws, and six grandchildren. All of them now live in the greater Indianapolis, which makes Pastor Kerry and Lynne very happy to live so much closer to them.
Joy, integrity, energy, care, humor, and an abiding relationship with Jesus Christ are among the many gifts Pastor Kerry brings to his ministry. He loves children, very young to very old! He welcomes everyone who wishes to sincerely worship and praise God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit to Mohawk UMC.
Connie Wilson is a longtime member of the church (since back when it was an
Evangelical United Brethren Church). She is responsible for keeping the church clean with the help of her husband, Ben.
