OUR LEADERSHIP AND STAFF
On May 3rd, 2020, the Congregational Church of Vergennes called the Rev. Elliott Munn to be their settled pastor, marking an exciting new chapter in the life of the congregation.
Wonderstruck at how God unexpectedly shows up in his own life, Elliott devotes his ministry to helping others find God in theirs. A storyteller at heart, he enjoys weaving the simple moments of everyday life into his preaching. As a lover of the outdoors, he routinely turns to skiing, boating, and hiking to renew his spirit.
Elliott is a graduate of Bowdoin College and Yale Divinity School. In 2015, he was ordained and began his ministry as the Associate Pastor of First Church in West Hartford, CT. When his spouse, Elizabeth, accepted a call as the Associate Pastor of the Congregational Church of Middlebury in 2019, he followed her north and served as the Transitional Pastor of the Waitsfield United Church of Christ.
Elliott and Elizabeth currently live in Middlebury, and they are so excited to be ministering in Addison County. Don't hesitate to connect with Elliott via email at email@example.com. He loves meeting new people, collaborating for justice, and welcoming folks into the church community.
