Welcome our new Associate Pastor Jordan Derhammer! She will begin July 1st.

Jordan grew up in Cedar Falls, IA, studied Religion and Ethics at UNI where she graduated in 2016, and continued her education at Iliff school of Theology, where she received her Masters of Divinity in 2019.

Jordan is currently serving in Iowa Falls and Alden UMC. Her passion for young people, new ministry opportunities, and connecting with any and all people will make her an incredibly welcome addition to our church! Jordan shares, “I think church should be fun and enjoyable for all ages as we celebrate the risen Christ!”

Fun facts from Jordan:
I have two cats - Rudy and Gertrude!
I am the oldest in my family - I have a little brother and little sister.
I love crafty things - you name the craft and I probably have done it. If not, I am always open to learning something new.
I love being outside in the summer.
I enjoy listening to audiobooks.
I love iced coffee and donuts!

Please welcome Jordan to the West Des Moines UMC church family!
