Rev. Dave Scavuzzo

Senior Pastor
I’ve been a pastor for 35 years (in one place for 20 years then supervision of clergy) and at Strongsville UMC beginning in July 2013.  I believe in the priesthood of all believers which means that I’m confident that every person has been called by God for some care of others that can change the world. Part of my own calling is to help provide settings and suitability for real people to live out a calling to be the hands, feet and ears of Jesus.
Joy comes from being married to Angie, from our kids and their spouses, three granddaughters and a huge extended family. On another level, I find peace in getting outside walking with a friend, kayaking (I have a fleet), backpacking out west, reading CS Lewis and eating lots of ice cream.

Rev. Hannah Weisbrod

Associate Pastor
I’ve been a pastor for six years and arrived here at SUMC in July of 2018. I find the most joy in ministry when I get the privilege to witness the many ways that God works in the lives of people.
When I’m not at church I enjoy reading, going to the gym, spending time with friends and family (especially my niece who is the best kid on the planet), and eating Mitchell’s ice cream.
