Rev. David Jadlocki comes to CCoH as of May 17, 2020, following 8 years of vibrant ministry at the First Congregational Church and Society in Rindge NH. Prior to pastoring in Rindge, Rev. David served as the transitional pastor in the Mont Vernon Congregational church, supporting them to claim a new organizational model that enhanced their ministries and encouraged future growth. He has continued his professional growth through the United Church of Christ’s Next Generational Leadership Education program and served as a church re-vitalization consultant across New Hampshire and in Pennsylvania.
"Bridges are essential to a successful journey…I stand by ready to minister to you, as together we courageously cross the bridge of faith, finding a deep and sustaining relationship with God,” stated Rev. Jadlocki.
A three-year process of self-reflection and mission was guided by Interim Minister Rev. Dr. Susan Tarolli and Bridge Pastor Rev. Robert Fellows. The Search Committee worked for many months to develop the church’s profile, with input from members of the congregation. Through the NH Conference of the United Church of Christ, Rev. Jadlocki emerged as the best match with the CCoH and received a unanimous vote of invitation by the Henniker congregation.
Beth Shulson and Deb Dow, members on the Search Team, said, respectively, “I am so excited and am confident that David will work side-by-side with us to make our church relevant in the community and position us to be that strong beacon of light for many years to come.” “At the second interview, David listed 6 well-articulated initiatives for the first 2 years of ministry together. It demonstrated his understanding of our church profile, who we are, and who God is calling CCoH to be.”
Throughout the early 2000s, Rev. Jadlocki worked as an advocate and non-profit administrator serving individuals with developmental disabilities and currently serves as a psychological educator for a counseling center in Manchester NH.
A native of New Jersey, Rev. Jadlocki received his B.A. from Drew University with a concentration in Psychology and Religion and earned a Master of Divinity degree with a specialization in Pastoral Care from Boston University School of Theology. Rev. Jadlocki resides in Peterborough, NH with his wife, Christie, and their two children, Olivia and Wesley.
