STAFF & Leadership

The search for our next full time pastor is ongoing. The Search Team is excited to have the opportunity to work with the congregation as we take steps toward filling this pastoral position.

Raised on the plains of central Kansas (traditional Osage/Niukonska lands), John Bergen is a third-generation Mennonite pastor, but don’t hold it against him. John has worked for Baptist and UCC churches and lived in Christian intentional community, and believes church always holds the possibility of practicing Jesus’ vision of a beloved community. John graduated from Oberlin College in May 2014.

A former member of Christian Peacemaker Teams, John got his start protesting the invasion of Iraq when he was in middle school. In Philly since May 2015, John currently organizes with Earth Quaker Action Team and the Coalition to Abolish Death By Incarceration.


John enjoys playing music with friends, reading nerdy books, and meeting new people over tea, whiskey, or a home-cooked meal. He would probably love to be your friend.
