Casey Ann Irwin


Casey serves as Pastor, passionately leading and teaching 
God's call to make disciples of Jesus Christ. She loves to connect 
with individuals and families, building life-giving relationships
across our congregation and communities, and hopes to
equip others to do the same.
Casey is an ordained elder in the United Methodist Church, and 
a 2012 graduate of United Theological Seminary in Dayton, OH.
Though she and her husband, Blake, originally hailed from TN,
7 years and 2 kids have made Ohio feel like home. In her downtime,
she enjoys hiking, biking, or simply walking with her family, 
baking cakes and cookies, and reading a wide variety of books 
with one of their two cats on her lap.
Casey joined us in December 2015, after serving as Pastor of 
Alger 1st UMC (2011-2014), and Associate Pastor of Grace
UMC in Perrysburg (2014-2015). She has also worked in a 
variety of community and poverty initiatives in her previous 
locations, living into God's call of loving and supporting 
community with all of our neighbors.
