Brendan Hock


ext. 101

Brendan experienced a call to serve God in full-time Christian ministry as a late teen.  In response to this call, and to begin preparing himself for this task and responsibility, he entered college and received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Pastoral Ministry in 2006.  He then entered Seminary and received Master’s of Divinity Degree from Wesley Theological Seminary in 2012. 

In his spare time, he enjoys reading, spending time with family, jogging, and playing sports.  Dearest to his heart is his love for the local Church which he believes, when done right with Christ in the center, is still the hope for the world. Brendan and his wife, Meagan, have two sons, Channing and Greyson. Both Brendan and Meagan were raised in Elizabethville, PA and they are excited to be serving Halifax United Methodist Church!
