Meet our dedicated staff

Rev. Kenneth H. Frey

Rev. Frey came to Union Congregational UCC in November of 2016.  A lifetime member of the United Church of Christ, Pastor Ken came to the pastorate, following a twenty year career in the business world.  As he said, "it was time for me to stop procrastinating, take up the cross, and answer God's call".  He went on to say, "this was the best decision I ever made.  Everyday I am driven to bring the all-inclusive love of Jesus to others".    Pastor Frey earned a BA degree in Business Management from Alvernia College in Reading, PA, and a Master of Divinity from Lancaster Theological Seminary in Lancaster, PA.   He and his wife, Dawn, live in Leesburg, FL.
