Rev. Dr. Cheryl L. Tatham; phone: 301-654-3631

I am SO glad that you found your way to our website!  I hope that you find things here that will be of interest to you, but most of all I hope you'll join us sometime to share in worship, in fellowship, in service.  Here at North Chevy Chase Christian Church, our deepest desire is that, the minute you walk through the door, you  will know that you are in a place where you are a precious being, essential to the world and part of the interconnected web of all existence.

A little bit about me -- I came to North Chevy Chase Christian Church in September 2005 after serving churches in Texas, Missouri, Virginia, and DC.  I'm a graduate of Brite Divinity School (TCU) in Fort Worth, TX, and received my Doctor of Ministry degree in Arts and Theology from Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, DC. One of my passions is exploring ways of utlizing the arts in making connections between our faith and our faithfulness to being agents of healing and wholeness.
