My name is Ethan Shearer.  I was born in Johnstown PA, and raised in a small town called Robinson, in Indiana County. In 2001, I graduated from United High School, in Armagh, PA. I later went on to college at Mount Aloysius and graduated in 2010, with a bachelor's degree in accounting.  Walmart is where I worked most of my life, before I received my call to ministry.  It was during these years that I learned to communicate with many different kinds of people from various walks of life.  My last job, before going into the ministry, was a machine operator.  I served in my home church as a youth leader and a lay leader, and always got involved in outreach programs, such as benefit dinners, annual festivals, and "Study Buddy Club". I am currently serving the eighth month of my first appointment at the two-point charge of Lander and Chandler's Valley UMC. My personal interests include reading and studying the Bible and the works of many Christian authors/theologians, being outdoors, spending time with my family and parishioners, and building relationships.  Reading literature, such as fantasy, adventure, and some science fiction--mainly Star Wars; going places and having get-togethers with my extended family and friends; outdoor activities; movies; and music are among my other interests.
