Our minister is Rev. Dr. David Anderman pictured with his wife, Rev. Dr. Alice Anderman.

Rev. Dr. David E. Anderman became Senior Minister in November, 2000. The son of a clergyman, he grew up in Shamokin, a small town in the coal regions of Northeastern Pennsylvania. He received an AB degree from the University of Pennsylvania followed by an MA in Ministry from the Divinity School of the University of Chicago. He was ordained by the United Church of Christ in 1975. In 1982 he earned the degree of Doctor of Ministry.

Before coming to Maine, David and Alice served at a number of churches in Maryland and Pennsylvania, both as co-pastors and individually. They have each served on many committees in the association, conference, and national church levels. Since arriving in Maine, Alice has been particularly active in the Maine Conference's partnership with Honduras, travelling there a number of times to meet with our partners and plan for future mission trips. David completed a national Pastor-Theologian program sponsored by the Lilly Endowment, a program that fosters theological research, writing and dialogue.

The Andermans have two grown children, Rachael and Jonathan.
