Pastor Reed Swanson

Senior Pastor
Pastor Reed Swanson was born and raised in Clarkston, Michigan and graduated from Methodist College in North Carolina, in 1988, with a Bachelor of Arts in Public Administration and Economics.  He graduated from Duke University with a Master of Divinity in 1995. At Duke, he focused on the Biblical study of Pauline literature and Christian Ethics, which continues to be his passion.

In today’s fast-paced world it’s our relationships and the community they form — the easy laughter of friends –that sustain us. At Frankenmuth United Methodist Church you will find strong bonds connecting us not only to one another, but also to a spiritual reality much greater than ourselves. It is from this connection to God and one another that we bridge out into the world to serve as Jesus taught.
