Ian Carr McPherson

Associate Pastor, United Church of Chapel Hill

The Rev. Ian Carr McPherson (he/they) is an associate pastor at the United Church of Chapel Hill and a North Carolina native. Ian is called to work for civic formation, accompanying communities inspired by ancient wisdom in their pursuit of personal, communal and societal transformation. Like his spiritual forebears, the charismatics and Pentecostals, Ian sees his call weaving together deep attentiveness to personal spiritual gifts and fiery devotion to the Spirit’s transgressive work through -- and for the sake of -- community.
