Second Congo’s next Pastor is someone whose Heart matches our Church’s Heart

Second Congo’s next Pastor is someone

whose Heart matches our Church’s Heart

A meeting of the congregation took place within the worship service of Sunday December 17, following a powerful sermon “Is Advent Political” by Mark Blank. The congregation voted unanimously to accept the recommendation of the Pastoral Search Committee to issue a formal call to Dennis Mark Blank to assume the position of Co-Pastor/Pastor of the Second Congregational Church, UCC of Bennington, Vermont. Congregation members had the opportunity to meet with him after worship at Jesus Birthday Party in the social hall.



Mark is a graduate of the Pittsburgh Theological Seminary and is 39 years old, having had a career in musical theatre. He comes from Pennsylvania (the Penn West Conference of the UCC) with stellar references and is an articulate and inspiring preacher. The Search Committee was very impressed with his personal profile, references, as well as the sermon the Committee heard him preach on December 3. A warm and engaging person, Mark embraces the opportunity to begin work in January 2018 with our pastor Mary Lee-Clark during this time of transition prior to Mary’s retirement in April 2018.
