John Livingston

The United Church of Rowayton has grown and blossomed in a myriad of ways since John
Livingston became its Pastor more than 30 years ago. John holds a Bachelor’s degree in music
from C.W. Post College and a Masters of Divinity from Union Theological Seminary, New York
City. He became a member of the United Church of Christ in 1975, when he and his wife Judi
joined The Congregational Church of Manhasset, NY. He began his ordained ministry on Long
Island, serving the Garden City Community Church, Garden City, NY, as its Youth Minister.
John summarizes his theology in one word: “Love”. John has three children with his wife Judi:
Kelly, Samantha, and Michael, and two grandchildren: Luca and Everly.
