Rev. Jeremy Mann joined the St. John’s United Church of Christ as pastor in March, 2022.
Rev. Jeremy Mann comes to us from Lebanon County, PA, where he graduated from Lancaster Theological Seminary with a Master of Divinity degree in May 2014. In September of that year Pastor Jeremy and his wife moved to Bluffton, OH where he was installed as Pastor and Teacher of Emmanuel in early 2015. He and his wife have two children, Kaleb and Lucy.
Rev. Mann said he is “humbled and honored” to continue to serve the Bluffton community with the addition of St. John’s. He has been president of Bluffton Area Ministerial Association (BAMA) for several years.
This shared pastorate renews a shared ministry that existed for decades prior to 1961, when each congregation decided to employ its own pastor. Older Bluffton residents may recall Rev. V.C. Oppermann and Rev. William Von Brauchitsch, the last pastor to serve both churches.
