Who We Are

Read aloud in worship every Sunday at 10am, we put these words into action as we seek to not only be a place of acceptance and affirmation for all of God’s children, but to also share the message out into the world of God’s undeniable and unconditional love for each and every person.

We at Glendale UMC want you to know that no matter:
Where you’ve come from or where you are going; what you believe or what you may doubt; what you are feeling or just not feeling; what you have or don’t have; and no matter whom you love – all of who you are is welcomed into this community of faith by a God who loves you and knows you by name.

Come as you are this Sunday - all are welcome at Glendale! For more info, check us out at GlendaleUMC.org or get in touch with our Lead Pastor, Rev. Steph Dodge at [email protected]

Peter van Eys | Pastor
Pastor

I was born in Nashville and raised in Green Hills. I entered the ministry in 1979 and have served churches across the Tennessee Conference and in the West Ohio Conference. I hold two degrees from Vanderbilt University (B.A. and M.Div.) and one from Boston University School of Theology (D.Min.). I am married to Patti, a Clinical Psychologist (Ph.D.), specializing in the care and advocacy of children and adolescents with maltreatment histories. We have two young adult sons, David and Dane, who both live in Nashville. David is in the field of Transportation Logistics and Dane is a 3rd year student at Vanderbilt Divinity School. I enjoy being with family, travel, hiking, and watching soccer. I am looking forward to a World Cup final between the United States and the Netherlands…maybe 2018? I consider it a privilege to be a pastor and desire that all might know God’s love and grace. Email me at [email protected]
