Pastor – Rev. Seth Neckers
Pastor Seth Neckers has been serving OUMC since July of 2016. Transplants to the area, Seth is originally from rural southwestern New York State and his wife, Chassity is originally from southwestern Pennsylvania. The two met in college through Campus Crusade for Christ, were married in 2011 and welcomed their first child, a girl named Evelyn, in October of 2016. Seth studied biology at Penn State (B.S.) before attending Asbury Theological Seminary (M.Div). What brought Seth here to Otterbein was his passion for “making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.” In his free time, he enjoys staying fit and being outside hunting, fishing, riding bike or working with his hands.
Melanie has been the secretary at Otterbein since August of 2016 and says that although it may be surprising, she had always hoped to be a church secretary at some point in her life. In her free time she enjoys spending time with her family and friends.
