Our Staff at Grant Memorial Methodist Church, Presque Isle, Maine
Pastor (beginning January 1st):  Rev. Dr. Tracy Reeves
Rev Tracy ReevesBorn in Bangor and raised in Hampden, ME, I am a graduate of Hampden Academy and have a Bachelor of Science in Art Education from the University of Maine as well as Masters of Divinty and Doctor of Ministry degrees from Bangor Theological Seminary. Before entering seminary, I taught elementary art and still like to exercise my creative skills in a variety of ways. In the old order of things, I was ordained as a Deacon in the Maine Annual Conference in 1992 and as an Elder in the New England Annual Conference in 1998. If you do the math, you will see that I have now been in full-time ministry for more than 30 years (I served part-time for two years as a student local pastor). My family of origin included my parents, Jean and Calvin and my brothers Scott and James, my sister, Beverly, and ME! The parsonage family today consists of the lovely CeeCee (a one-eyed dilute calico) and ... ME. I have served churches in [North Sullivan, Gouldsboro, Prospect Harbor], [Easton, Mars Hill], [Orland, Bucksport, North Bucksport, Penobscot], [North Brewer/Eddington, Brewer], [Lunenburg, MA], [Old Town, Stillwater, Mattawamkeag], and now am happy to live and serve in Aroostook County once more but this time with the people of Grant Memorial UMC.
