Meet the Staff

This gives us the opportunity to introduce the pastor and key staff members

 The Rev. Dr. Tracy Reeves, in her own words 

     I was born in Bangor, ME at EMMC and brought home by my parents to Hampden Highlands in January of 1962 (yep, that makes me 51 years old).  My mother was Jean Irving Reeves (from Brewer) and my father was Calvin Reeves (from Winterport, Bangor and Hampden).  Mom was an L.P.N at Bangor Mental Health Institute and Dad worked for the Town of Hampden Public Works Department.  I have two brothers (Scott and James and their spouses Jayne and Linda) and one sister (Beverly), nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins galore and three indoor housecats (Hendrix, Jayjay, and Sam).

    I grew up in the Hampden Highlands United Methodist Church and attended Hampden schools, graduating from Hampden Academy in 1980.  I then attended the University of Southern Maine for two years and then finished my Bachelor’s degree in Art Education at the University of Maine at Orono.  Upon graduation, I was an itinerant elementary art teacher for the Howland, West Enfield and Burlington elementary schools for two years.  After that, I became the elementary art teacher in Hampden and Winterport for three years.

     In 1990, I entered Bangor Theological Seminary. In 1992, during my second year of seminary I was ordained a Deacon and appointed to serve the Schoodic Circuit (North Sullivan, Gouldsboro and Prospect Harbor) where I stayed until I received my Masters of Divinity in 1993.  Upon graduation, I was appointed to Mars Hill UMC and Easton UMC in “the County” where I served for five years.  I was then appointed to a five-church cooperative ministry called Pine Tree United Methodist Ministries.  There, I served as the leader of a pastoral team that served the following churches: North Bucksport, Franklin Street, East Bucksport, Orland and Penobscot.  I served in this unique appointment for seven years during which time I earned the Doctor of Ministry degree from Bangor Theological Seminary.  In 2005, I was appointed to the North Brewer-Eddington United Methodist Church where I continue to serve.  Due to financial stresses, NBE UMC had to reduce their pastoral service to time almost two years ago.  At that time, a neighboring UMC (First UMC of Brewer) also had to go to time and I was appointed to serve  both churches.

    Today, I am looking forward to where God is leading in this next phase of the journey AND getting to know all of YOU at The United Parish of Lunenburg!
