Denomination: Presbyterian Church (USA) (PCUSA)

Rev. Dwight McCormick is the solo pastor of Northminster Presbyterian Church of Springfield Ohio.  He has been in parish ministry for 13 years in the Presbyterian Church USA.  When he is not working to keep up with his wife and daughters he enjoys spending time performing as a stand-up comic in churches, comedy clubs, and any venue that has a microphone and a desire to laugh. He is interested in the authentic, often not pretty life of discipleship and how humor informs the way we follow the path of Jesus Christ.
