Reaching Others With the Love of Christ.

Pastoral Change at Anne Ashley

Pastor Don Blinn, Jr. has been in ministry for over 37 years. Earlier this year Pastor Don had announced his retirement. We acknowledge his many years of serving the Lord and we wish him well in his retirement. He departs with our prayers for his future and for guidance of where God will lead him. We have a feeling He is not quite finished with him yet. We will miss Don, Kim, and Ben and hope to see them again down the road.
 


We are please to announce that Reverend Keith Kaulfold has been appointed to be the new pastor at Anne Ashley UMC. Anne Ashley will join a charge which includes 8th Avenue Place, West Homestead, and New Day Swissvale.
 
Keith is the founding pastor/director of Eighth Avenue Place in Homestead. He is married to Monica and they have two beautiful daughters, Malea, 6 ,and Jessa, 1. Throughout his adolescence, Keith was involved with Homestead Park UMC and transferred to Christ UMC- in Bethel Park while a teenager. Keith re-awoken to God’s love while working at Jumonville for a six-year period and sensed a God’s call to ordained ministry while dean of HOPE Camp working with at-risk youth. In 2008 through 2012, Keith was a volunteer chaplain in Allegheny County Jail, visiting inmates and teaching addiction recovery. Although in active ministry for 11 years, Keith was ordained an elder in 2011 and has served congregations in McKeesport, Millvale, Aspinwall, and the Steel Valley area. Keith’s passion is to see the reality of Jesus take precedence in people’s lives, leading to community engagement and transformation. It is Keith’s desire to see the body of Christ join together across racial and socio-economic lines and “live out” life together depending upon the Spirit of God. 
 
Keith graduated from Pittsburgh Theological Seminary with both a Master of Divinity and a Master in Sacred Theology degree. He has recently graduated from California University of Pa with Master in Social Work and is a Licensed Social Work in Pennsylvania.
