Who We Are

About Our Pastor

And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.” Luke 24:27

Rev. Jonarthan D. Conant joined Rye Congregational Church in January of 2023.  He was born and raised in Portland, ME and heard God’s call to pastoral ministry at the age of 15. He attended Gordon College and Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary where he graduated with  Masters of Divinity and Masters of Counseling degrees.  Gordon College is also where he met his wife Jennifer, a fellow music major and a gifted mezzo-soprano.  Pastor Jon believes that Jennifer earned those degrees along with him. After 12 wonderful years of worshipping, learning, growing and finally ministering as Associate Pastor at First Presbyterian Church in Ipswich, Massachusetts, Reverend Conant answered the call of Rye Congregational Church to become our Senior Pastor.  Pastor Jon and his wife Jennifer reside in Dover with their four children, Jeremiah, Isaac, Isabelle and Eden.

About Us


Volunteer Opportunities

“From one man, He made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and He determined that times set for them and the exact places where they should live. God did this so that men would seek Him and perhaps reach out for Him, though He is not far from each one of us.” Acts 17:26-27.

Our Worship Service


While they were eating, Jesus took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying “Take and eat; this is my body.”


Music is an essential part of each of our services, led by our Choir Director, Mindy McMahon, and our Organist/Accompanist, Suzanne Sheppard.
