Got Questions for Our Leaders?
Einar Rom - Lead Pastor
Pastor Einar and Dawn Rom joined us on Jan. 11, 2020, coming to us from the Gardner/Fitchburg, MA churches. They have been happily wedded since 1990 and have a son, Josiah, who graduated from South Lancaster Academy and Walla Walla University and is now working in the Seattle, WA area as a Mechanical Engineer. Pastor Einar believes that healthy churches are growing churches, and that when Christ is lifted up, people will be drawn to Him. His favorite book of the Bible is Romans, his favorite text is John 10:10, and his favorite contemporary author is Philip Yancey. They are excited to be here and look forward to serving in any way they can.
Pro Tip: Pastor Einar's heritage is Norwegian, so his first name is pronounced A-nar (the A is like the a in ate).
Cameron Loss - Lead Elder
Cameron Loss has taught English for 24 years, including ten at South Lancaster Academy. He moved to the area in 1992 when attending Atlantic Union College and has been a member of the College Church since 1996. He joined our leadership team as lead elder in 2017. He lives in Worcester, MA, with his wife, Debbie, and children Damon and Bianca.

Ilana Cady - Music Coordinator

She loves to grow Dahlias and go on walks with her beagle, Ivy Ives. She has a BMUS and MM in piano performance from Andrews University and Longy School of Music, respectively.
Ed Collins - Office Admin, co-A/V Leader, co-Clerk, Website Developer
Ed Collins has been a member of the College Church since about 1985. He loves summer, acoustic guitar, Boston sports, vegan foods, and spending time at a special little camp (that's a cottage to you non-Mainers!) on Webb Lake in Weld, Maine, where his family has been vacationing since at least the 1930s. He has an Ed.M. in Educational Media and Technology from BU.
