Meet Pastor Caren

Welcome to Mount Hermon United Methodist Church!

I’m Pastor Caren Bigelow Morgan.

Currently, I’m in my third year at Mount Hermon. I also serve Cedar Valley United Methodist Church, our sister church 3 miles away. My ministry here is rich with pastoral care, teaching and preaching. I have been a pastor for over 30 years, serving various sizes and shapes of local parishes throughout western North Carolina.

I received my seminary education at Claremont School of Theology in Claremont, California. I also studied Religious Education and Church Music at Scarritt College in Nashville, Tennessee. My undergraduate degree is in Music Education from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.

My greatest passion in ministry is bringing people to a new or renewed relationship with the living Christ. My passions are teaching and preaching. I especially enjoy teaching Bible studies for all ages, as well as small groups and Sunday school classes.

When I’m not busy ministering to two churches, I enjoy all kinds of crafts, as well as swimming, reading, theater, UNC Tarheel basketball, music and playing with my two mini-beagles, Jesse and Jane.

I’m married to John Morgan and I have 4 grown children scattered throughout North Carolina.

I pray you will find in me (and my church!) a loving, compassionate friend and a safe place to seek spiritual grace and fulfillment.

Love in Christ,

Pastor Caren
