    Pastor Gordon "Skip" Bowen

         

Pastor Gordon E. "Skip" Bowen Jr. was born and raised in northern York County. He is a graduate of Red Land High School. His pastoral and theological education was acquired at Nazarene Bible College in Colorado Springs, Colorado, where he graduated in May of 1983. He has pastored churches in Wyoming and Pennsylvania and has served on staff at two other churches as associate pastor of visitation and outreach, most recently at Mountain Grove Chapel Church of the Nazarene. He has been married to Wanda (Brenner) for 39 years. They live near Lewisberry where they reared their son (Jonathan) and their daughter (Jennifer). They enjoy being grandparents to two active boys.
 
Pastor is a "blue collar" kind of guy. He is bi-vocational and currently drives tractor trailer for FedEx Express where he has been employed for nearly 27 years. When once asked about the strain of being bi-vocational, pastor replied, " I think that it's important for my people to know that I have been where they are. I know what it's like to punch the clock, to sometimes feel unappreciated, and to be physically "dog tired" at the end of the work week. People like to know that their pastor can relate to real life issues." In addition to his pastoral duties at Mt. Washington Pastor Skip also serves as Chaplain for the Newberry Township Police Department. In his spare time, pastor enjoys hunting, fishing, hiking and raising Boer goats on the family farm.
