Pastor and Staff
Rev. Darlene Avery
Pastor Darlene Avery, aka “RevDar,” was born in Germany as a military “brat.” She moved over 10 times in her first 18 years around the United States and in Germany twice. Her earliest spiritual development was as part of ecumenical chapel worship and education; her baptism certificate says "Protestant.” She was raised in a Christian family respectful of other cultures and faiths.
A native of Reading, Pennsylvania, Teresa brings years of experience in Music Ministry to Church in the Wildwood. She has served in a United Church of Christ parish and two Lutheran parishes over the years. She has developed and expanded music ministries for the churches she served through choral and handbell choirs, praise teams, drama teams and youth ministry. Teresa is also trained in organ pedagogy and maintained a teaching studio in Pennsylvania. She loves empowering the people of Christ’s church to use their musical talents to worship God.
