We are indeed mostly lay-led, meaning that services are presented by non-ordained members of the fellowship on most Sundays. However, we also have a part-time minister, who serves our fellowship in a variety of ways.

David Soliday has been in contract as our pastor since the spring of 2013. He is a 2007 graduate of the Methodist Theological School in Ohio, and has completed Clinical Pastoral Education at Marion General Hospital Hospice.

By day, he’s the Instructional Technologist at Ohio Wesleyan University, where he also produces Earthdance Ohio, and serves as an advisor on Spring Break Interfaith Service teams. He’s also a member of Sustainable Delaware Ohio, and enjoys all kinds of games, music, and dance.

As a member of the Delaware Ministers Association, he occasionally writes the Religion column for the Delaware Gazette or offers the invocation at Delaware City Council meetings. He may be contacted for weddings or other ceremonies.
