The Rev. Brett Swanson

I am originally from Central California; Gilroy to be precise. I attended Whitworth University in Spokane, Washington, for the football program, but fell in love with my philosophy and theology studies. I graduated from Whitworth in 2001 with a double major in religion and philosophy. After two years of teaching middle school history and coaching football in California, I followed God’s call to seminary and enrolled at Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary. I devoted myself to field education and my studies, and graduated in 2006 with a Master of Divinity with a concentration in Christian Education.

As May 11th, 2011, I have been Pastor to The Presbyterian Church of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. It continues to be a great honor.
