PTC United Methodist Church Welcomes New Pastor

On June 29th, the Peachtree City UMC welcomed their new Pastor, Rev. Herzen Andone to the staff as their new Senior Pastor. Rev. Chuck Hodges, who had served as the Senior Pastor for the last twelve years, has been appointed to Athens First United Methodist Church in Athens, GA.

Rev. Andone is married to Rev. Jennifer Andone, who has just been appointed to serve as the Pastor at Inman United Methodist Church. They met while they were both students at the Candler School of Theology at Emory University.

Jennie Andone was born in Ohio but grew up in Roswell. She is a graduate of Roswell High School and Stetson University. Herzen Andone grew up in a Navy family and moved as his father’s career took him from place to place. Toward the end of his father’s service, he settled in Florida. He graduated from Escambia High School in Pensacola, Florida and, after a few years of working in the business world, returned to college and graduated from the University of Florida.

In the midst of pastoring churches in North Georgia they became parents to two boys. Dakin is 14 and Dylan is 11. Rev. Andone brings years of experience with him from his previous appointments and not only is an accomplished preacher, but an outstanding musician as well, as the congregation experienced on his first Sunday. The Peachtree City UMC welcomes the Andone family to the staff and invites our community to come and meet our newest pastor.
