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).

"The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly." John 10:10

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.

"Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also." John 14:1–3

Fred Day - Lead Deacon

Fred Day is originally from Idaho, where he joined the church as a young adult in 1980. He has been a member of the College Church since 2005.

"But God shows his love for us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us." Romans 5:8

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.

"So I will walk with the Lord in the land of the living. I believed, so I said, “I am completely ruined.” In my distress I said, “All people are liars.” What can I give the Lord for all the good things he has given to me? I will lift up the cup of salvation, and I will pray to the Lord." Ps. 116:9–13

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.

"May the God of peace himself sanctify you wholly; and may your spirit and soul and body be kept sound and blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is faithful, and he will do it." 1 Thess. 5:23–24
