Rev. Brittany Hesson (or Pastor Brittany) came to Minerva in June 2019 just a few days after being ordained as a Minister of Word and Sacrament in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). Pastor Brittany moved to Ohio from Kentucky where she earned degrees in business and divinity. She has a passion for justice work and Christian education. When she's not doing church work, Pastor B is in North Canton with her two adopted cats, Aspen and Beau, or exploring other cities around Ohio, New York, and Pennsylvania.
Doug Massay was born and raised in Minerva. In fact, a lot of his “fetchin’ up” happened in this very church. When he’s not sweeping the carpets, answering the phones, or taking care of the computer needs of the church, he enjoys a semi-professional career as a deck-gardener / jigsaw-puzzler (for which he’s garnered moderate amounts of self-acclaim).
