Pastor Dan Breznau has been appointed to Mount Vernon First UMC since July of 2010. Before then he served the congregation at Lake Chelan United Methodist Church for the prior nine years, bringing with him his wife Denise and children Daniel & Maria. 

Pastor Dan has, as well, served in a variety of capacities within churches in the Northeast. He has an extensive background in Christian Education and worked for a time at the United Methodist Publishing House where he operated within the Video & Audio production department. He received a B.A. from Gordon College  in Wenham, MA in Biblical Studies with minors in both psychology and sociology. He holds as well a M.A. from Scarritt Graduate School in Nashville, TN in Christian Education and a M. Div. from United Theological School in Dayton, Ohio. More recently, he has deepened his understanding about the spiritual journey having spent time  going through a two year course in Spiritual Direction at Gonzaga University in Spokane.

In addition, Pastor Dan comes with  diverse work experience outside of the church from owning and operating his own business to working in a restaurant selling "Coney Dogs" in his younger days.

I pray that God will help you on your journey and you will come to know and love the Lord all the more.  ~Blessings, Pastor Dan
