Reverend David L. Ledford, III
The Ledford family began ministry with AUMC on July 1, 2021. Reverend Dave graduated with a B.A. in Education from Kean University in 2010 and was a teacher before answering God’s call to ministry. He went to Drew Theological School and graduated with a M.Div. in 2014. Reverend Dave has served four different Greater New Jersey churches and communities during his eight years in ministry including Berkeley Heights, Warren, Phillipsburg, and (for the 5 years before moving to Absecon) Vincentown. Establishing relationships, equipping the laity, empowering the youth, making new disciples and inspiring church members to be good and active Christian witnesses in the world are some of his first priorities in ministry. Reverend Dave and his wife, Sherrie, have been married since 2016 but have been together since high school. Their son Georgie was born in 2019.
