Postponed: Ordination Service for Pastor Daniel


Pastor Daniel shares with his Grace UMC family that he will be officially ordained as an Elder by Bishop Sally Dyck on Friday, November 13, at Barrington UMC.  Delayed due to the pandemic, this service will be live-streamed for all who wish to participate (visit www.umcnic.org for information).

We at Grace UMC are blessed to be able to share this important capstone in Pastor Daniel’s journey.  It is, indeed, the final step in a process that requires years of study, vulnerability, prayer, discernment and dollars. In "normal" times we would invite carloads of people to the ordination service in support of Daniel’s ministry among us. Since that’s not possible this year, I hope we can still find ways to show our love and appreciation, to give him that buoyant sense of celebration that helps to launch a lifetime of work as an Ordained Elder!  

If you would like to send a card or note of congratulations, you may address to Rev. Dr. Daniel Cochran at Grace UMC, 300 E. Gartner Rd., Naperville, IL 60540.
