Ministry Team

Rev. Dr. Patrick Bowman “Bo” Gordy-Stith

Our pastor, the Rev. Dr. Bo Gordy-Stith leads, teaches, and inspires followers of Jesus Christ of all ages and faith stages in churches across the Peninsula-Delaware Conference of the United Methodist Church. Bo applies skills honed over ten-years as a naval officer and over 25 years as a pastor to help individuals and groups celebrate and embrace God’s calling in their lives. A passionate follower of Jesus and a lifelong storyteller, Bo thrives on connecting everyday stories with the greatest story ever told. God’s grace leads him to live out his love for Jesus as a foster parent, local school mentor, and cancer fighter through platelet donations and research fundraising. Bo enjoys cycling, reading, and sharing life and music with his wife of 32 years, the Rev. Dr. Vicki Gordy-Stith, especially camping and hiking with their Golden Doodle, Wesley. Bo and Vicki are blessed to share life with three children, Joy, 24, Eli, 21, and Elijah, who was killed just before his 21st birthday. Born and raised near Raleigh, North Carolina, after raising his own family here for the past 20 years, Bo calls Delaware home.
