Our Pastor is Pastor Ray Meute, Jr. Pastor Ray graduated from Grove City College in 1985 with a B.A. in Business Administration. He then carried on his studies at Princeton Theological Seminary receiving his Master of Divinity Degree in 1988.
After seminary he served as the Associate Pastor of the Hampton Presbyterian Church, Gibsonia, PA, in the North Hills of Pittsburgh. Serving the Hampton church for eight years, he then moved to Avondale, PA, and served as Pastor of Avondale Presbyterian Church for 20 years.
After serving as Highland Presbyterian’s Interim Pastor for 18 months, the congregation voted unanimously in favor of calling Pastor Ray as their next Installed Pastor. It was necessary for this call to be approved and voted on by the Presbytery of Baltimore which took place on May 11, 2017 – again unanimously in favor of this call. Highland Presbyterian very quickly prepared for the Installation of The Rev. Raymond R. Meute, Jr. as Pastor on June 4, 2017 with a wonderful and very meaningful Installation service and dinner following! We all feel very blessed to be continuing this faith and discipleship journey together!
Ray and his wife Nancy are the parents of three young adults: Josh, Caleb, and Mindy.
