Meet the Pastor

Meet our Pastor

Rev. Chris McArdle


Hello, and welcome to First Congregational UCC of Anoka!

 I’m a Nebraska native.  I grew up in Crete and graduated from Doane College.  I have an Master of Arts degree in Religious Studies from Boston University and a Master of Divinity degree from Eden Theological Seminary in St. Louis, Missouri.  My spouse, Erin, is also originally from Nebraska.


This is an exciting time to be part of this beloved congregation! – where:

relationships are born, nurtured and deepened;

faith is grown by questioning standing assumptions;

and God is experienced in the movement of the Spirit through every facet of daily life.

When you become a member of this faith community, you become a shaper of its future!
