Dan & Sandy Metz
The Lord brought us to the beautiful mountains of Pennsylvania where we began serving the Mount Union Wesleyan Church on July 1, 2019 after serving churches in Indiana and Ohio. We are passionate about doing ministry together and love to connect with people wherever they are on their spiritual journey.
Dan has had previous careers in landscaping, municipal utilities, and Information Technology. In his spare time he likes to hike, work outdoors, and build and repair things. He is a graduate of Indiana Wesleyan University (1988) and an ordained elder in The Wesleyan Church (2011).
Sandy graduated from Indiana Wesleyan University where she earned a masters degree in counseling and became a licensed marriage and family therapist. She loves flowers, decorating, and planning. She especially enjoys working with young adults but also delights in connecting with women, listening and encouraging. Sandy also serves on the PennYork District Board of Ministerial Development.
We have three adult sons who are now married and have blessed us with nine beautiful grandchildren.
