The Rev. Steve Good was appointed as pastor of Channahon United Methodist Church, replacing the Rev. Ann Spurgeon upon her retirement.
The bishop of the Northern Illinois Conference announced the move after Good served 18 years as pastor of Sugar Grove United Methodist Church.
Good has served as an ordained United Methodist minister for 25 years. He received his undergraduate degree at Goshen College in Indiana and his master’s degree at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary in Evanston.
He has been married to Raney Good for 25 years; she is an ordained deacon in the United Methodist Church and teaches sixth grade. The Goods have two sons.
“People have been very welcoming and genuine to me and my family,” he said. “They have been patient with me as I work at remembering names and relationships.”
