Our Staff


  Pastor Matt Gorman came to us in the summer of 2018.  He has spent 25 years in pastoral ministry in the Pacific Northwest.  Matt has three adult children, Wendy, David, and Sean, and is engaged to be married to longtime girlfriend Deb in the spring.

 He enjoys hiking, climbing, cross-country skiing, running, and Chinese cooking, and is passionate about helping develop God’s grace-filled community.






Judy Davies is a lifelong resident of the town of Cashmere and a member of Cashmere UMC since the 1970’s.  Luckily for us, she has been our church secretary and office manager since April 1994, and like most of her counterparts, is the backbone of our church.

Judy is in the church office from 11:00 am until 1:30 pm Tuesday and Wednesday and 11:00 am until 2:30 pm on Thursday.  Her love of reading has paid dividends for her as it has worked into employment with the Cashmere Public Library two days a week.




Tim Gubsch is a local businessman during the week and has been our pianist and member of our congregation since August 2011. Tim’s love of the piano began when he was in elementary school and eventually pushed him to graduate from Pacific Lutheran University with a degree in music.

As you would expect he continues to have a passion for playing the piano and spends what time he can playing and singing for Mountain Meadows, a local assisted living community. He also enjoys watching movies with friends, playing contract bridge as well as going to the theater and other community events.
