Asbury United Methodist Church Welcomes a New Pastor
Asbury United Methodist Church is excited to welcome our new pastor, Rev. Douglas Cunningham and his wife Becky Asedillo. Rev. Doug is the founding pastor of New Day Church in the Bronx, and was Pastor Melissa Hinnen’s mentor during her internship.
Rev. Doug is originally from Ohio where he received his BS. While studying for his master’s at Pacific School of Religion at Berkeley, CA, he met Becky who is from the Philippines and was also a seminary student there. When Becky returned to the Philippines, Rev Doug chose to relocate to the Philippines where he served as a missionary intern, missionary, and Co-Director of the Church of Coalition for Human Rights.
Rev. Doug and Becky have two adult daughters—one who is married and one who will be married in July. Both of his daughters have also gone to seminary.
Rev. Doug has a rich background as an Elder in the New York Annual Conference, having served four churches – two in Baltimore and two in Brooklyn-- in addition to New Day Church. Rev. Doug will begin his ministry at Asbury on July 7.
