Rev. Bob Feeny
Pastoral Resident, 2nd Year
At the age of three, Bob told his family he wanted to become a preacher. Although many of us change our earliest vocational ideas, Bob, who grew up in Pittsfield, New Hampshire, in the tradition of the Pentecostal Evangelical church, did not waver. His earnest dedication to his call is something he takes seriously, though he doesn’t take himself too seriously. He recently acknowledged that he preaches in flipflops and frequently offers wry remarks or a witty observation of modern life to deliver a fresh interpretation of scripture.
Bob’s sermons reflect his interest in interpreting God’s word with God’s people and his desire to engage a wide range of voices and experiences. Bob has earned the nickname Professor Bob, as he leads Bible study and enjoys exploring topics about social justice, identity, and the transformative power that resides within communities.
Bob earned a master of divinity at the University of Chicago, where he studied prior to coming to Wellesley Village Church. He graduated Plymouth State University with a degree in English. Bob has a deep interest in leading parishes to become radical, transformative communities.
Bob is open to new experiences on his path. He is a passionate runner, a climber and a cyclocross racer.
