Rev. Pam Carey

Our Pastor
Greetings. My name is Pam, and I am the new pastor for DUMC. I grew up on Long Island, and first came to this part of the state to attend Ithaca College. I got married and my husband, Chris and I decided that this would be a great place to raise children, so we settled in Trumansburg. Our three children are grown now.

My husband worked for a time at SUNY Cortland in the Student Health Center and retired from there several years ago. I attended Colgate Rochester Divinity School after a long career as a physical therapist, graduating in 2013. I was commissioned at Annual Conference that same year and was appointed to serve The United Methodist Churches in Arkport and Bishopville in the Mountain View district.

Chris and I enjoy the outdoors. He does more serious hiking that I do, but we both enjoy being outdoors. I also like to garden. When not outdoors, I enjoy reading and have recently tried my hand at quilting. In the past few years, I have enjoyed doing some simple knitting for the organization Knit for Kids with the craft group that meets at the Arkport UMC. I am looking forward to journeying with you as we follow Jesus. together.
