  • Rev. F. Bud Bish

    Associate Pastor

    Forrest "Bud" Bish (named after his grandfather - not the Forrest Gump movie) is married to Janet (Benny), and they have one son and daughter-in-law, Matthew and Katie. Bud is retired from full-time pastoral work, but visits shut-ins and those in the hospital and leads in Sunday morning worship. In his years of ministry, it has always been his desire to make a difference in the lives of the people he touched - just to be a help to them. He loves to play golf (thankfully he doesn't have to depend on that skill to feed his family!), his beverage of choice is Mt. Dew, and he loves ice cream as an evening snack.


    Bud has a B.S. in Secondary Education with a major in geography and a history minor for Clarion University. He earned his Master of Divinity degree from Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, D.C.
