Our Pastor


Rev. Kevin Hershey, founder Companions on the Way

Br. Kevin is a New Monastic monk and an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).  As a former therapist specializing in Contextual Therapy with couples and families, he sees the Christ’s ministry as teaching us the Way of Holy Relationship.  His desire to create a worshiping community focused on learning and practicing this kind of relationship with God, others, and self, led him to become a founder of Companions on the Way.

Kevin is a contemplative, an Anam Cara providing spiritual direction, a spiritual retreat leader, a Friend of the Northumbria Community, and is involved in the 1001 New Worshiping Communities Initiative.  As a “Monk-in-the-world” (as Fr. Wayne Teasdale puts it), Kevin also works as the pastor of a traditional Presbyterian church in Scottsville, NY, and has a family with a wonderful wife and two amazing daughters.
