Meet Our Moderator

Greetings! I am pleased to be the new moderator of the session. I prepared for ordination in the Presbyterian Church USA at Yale Divinity School class of 1981. With my wife, MJ, I served as co-pastor of a congregation in Rochester. In 2005 I became pastor of the Hamilton Union Presbyterian Church in Guilderland. I received training in Spiritual Direction from the Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, Georgia as well as a Certificate in Spiritual Formation from the same school. I have two children and three grandchildren. I recently retired from pastoral ministry and look forward to partnering with the Renssalaerville congregation in your spiritual journey.

Stewart Pattison, M.Div.
