It is our pleasure to announce we will be having a prospective candidate visiting our church on July 27, 2014. Dr. Rev. Thea McKee will be delivering the message "In All Things" at the United Presbyterian Church, 1101 N. Broadway, at 10:30 A.M. that day. Her message will include her favorite Bible passage Romans 8:28 with explanations of how God works in our lives. She holds a Doctorate of Ministry from Drew University in New Jersey, a Mastor of Divinity from Austin Presbyterian Thelological Seminary, and a Bachelor of Arts/Social Work from the University of Northern Iowa. She has Pastored in Texas, Kansas and Oklahoma and is presently the Pastor of Bethany Presbyterian Church in Muskogee, OK. She has also taught at the college level.
Her husband, Aaron, has a Master's of Public Administration; they have two children; one of whom will be married in September. Members of United Presbyterian Church, Jim and Joyce Kennedy, attended the General Assembly of PCUSA in Detroit last month where they met and interviewed Rev. Thea McKee. They felt she would be a good "fit" for their congregation and are excited for the members to meet her and her husband. There will be a carry-in dinner following the service.
