On November 2, 2014, Session unanimously approved a contract with Richard (Dick) Wohlschlaeger, our new Interim Associate Pastor for Senior Adults and Pastoral Care.
Dick retired in October 2013 after 20 years as pastor of Swarthmore Presbyterian Church. While a parish pastor, he found himself more deeply drawn to pastoral care and counseling and used his continuing education time for training as a counselor, becoming a certified marriage and family therapist through the Council for Relationships. For the last few years he has had a professional relationship with BMPC as a marriage and family therapist at the Middleton Center, seeing clients on his day off from Swarthmore. Since his retirement a year ago, he and his wife Kathy moved to Newtown Square, and have made BMPC their church home, worshipping with us regularly.
