Pastor Sean Dougherty and his wife of 24 years, Katryn, moved to Guam in July 2020 from Pennsylvania.
“Katryn and I are very excited by LCG’s call to serve and worship among all those who proclaim Christ as savior, who desire to know more about our Lord, and who wish to experience the power of God’s Spirit,” he said. “We are excited to learn about Guam’s cultures and grow with God’s people here.”
After graduating seminary with a Master of Divinity from Evangelical Seminary in Myerstown, Penn., Pastor Sean was asked to serve as senior pastor with the United Methodist Church and has since served consecutively larger Methodist churches across the United States, most recently at Reeders United Methodist Church in Reeders, Penn.
He gives God the glory for calling him — through his wife and through the Black Sheep Motorcycle Ministry, a motorcycle club dedicated to sharing the Gospel — to do His work. Sean and Katryn, better known as “Kat and Dog” in the biking community, enjoy riding his motorcycles across the country and, now, across the island.
He is versed in the Lutheran tradition, having raised both of his daughters in the Lutheran church. Sean and Katryn’s two daughters, now grown, reside in the U.S. mainland.
In addition to his master’s, Pastor Sean holds a bachelor’s degree in computer engineering and is looking forward to finishing his doctorate in supernatural ministry through distance learning with the United Theological Seminary.
Sean and Katryn love hiking, the outdoors, and meeting new people.
They welcome you to the Lutheran Church of Guam to “come as you are and leave changed by Christ.”
