Rev. Dwight McCormick II
| Dwight therefore is concerned about issues of the inclusive nature of theGrace of God. His theology is centered on the understanding that no one is excluded from the love of God for any reason-and that God calls all people to ministry both in the congregational setting as well as within the global Church.
Acknowledging that his human understanding is limited he relies on the enormity of God's love and the mysterious nature of the Divine to guide his life and ministry. He considers himself broken-but made whole through the mercy of Jesus Christ.
Dwight sees his ministry as an expression of his gratitude for being saved by Grace through faith in Christ Jesus. His deepest desire is to point others towards healing who have been hurt by a gospel that proclaims self-righteousness, and legalism over and above the forgiving nature of Jesus. He does so through the use of humor as a part time stand-up comic, and through his full time calling as a Teaching Elder in the PC (USA).
He began his call process in the Presbytery of West Virginia at Highlawn Presbyterian Church of Huntington West Virginia. He credits Dr. Jack Haga (Highlawn's then pastor), and Reverends Bob and Beth Bondurant (campus ministers at Marshall University) for helping him discern the call into parish ministry.
In 1998, Dwight graduated from Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary with his Master of Divinity degree after completing his undergraduate work at Marshall University in Huntington West Virginia in 1993-he received a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology.
Dwight has been an active member of Presbytery wherever he has served. His most recent opportunities for service have been working with the Committee on Ministry and the Nominating Committee within the Presbytery of the Miami Valley.
He has served as a solo pastor for 13 years. Dwight served a combined eight years with churches in Kentucky and West Virginia. He has served for 5 years from 2007-present at Northminster Presbyterian Church in Springfield Ohio.
Dwight is married to Sarah who is an optician and they have two daughters in grade school. They are happy to serve alongside the folks at Northminster and look forward to wherever God leads them as a family and with this community of faith.
