Senior Pastor
Rev. Dr. Truman T. Brooks III

I oversee the spiritual life and mission of the church. Preaching, teaching, visioning, and attending to pastoral care are my passion.

I graduated from Lebanon Valley College (BA in Psychology and Religion), Princeton Theological Seminary (M. Div.), the Marriage Council of Philadelphia (presently called the Council for Relationships) with a certificate in Marriage, Family, and Sex Therapy, and Palmer Seminary (D.Min.).
I have served as a United Methodist Pastor for over 30 years all around the Philadelphia Area- the Kensington section of Philadelphia, Conshohocken, Lansdale, and now West Chester.
I have served as an adjunct professor at Palmer Seminary and Wesley Seminary and taught pastoral care, leadership, and worship courses in the Eastern PA Conference Local Pastor’s School and in Kenya. I have served on several local boards for service organizations in my communities and helped out with community theater. I have volunteered for one week a year at summer camp as a director or counselor for over 30 years.
As for my personal interests, I love singing and playing guitar, skiing, biking, hiking, and all Philly sports. I love being a husband, father, and supportive member of the community.
