Our Pastor

Pastor Susan Moody came to Chester in July of 2012 as our Interim Pastor. In July of 2014, her title was changed to Transitional Pastor in recognition of the need to extend her contract for a few years while we continue to prepare for the next phase of ministry at the Congregational Church of Chester VT.
