Hello and wecome to the Brodhead United Methodist Church Website!


My name is Krystal Goodger. I grew up in Janesville, WI. My parents are Al and Nancy Hansen Bennett. I graduatedfrom Craig High School and then went to college at UW-Madison. There I graduated with a BS in Political Science and Minors in Religious Studies and Jewish Studies. From there I went to grad school at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary.


I worked in 2 churches while I was in school. I worked at Asbury UMC in Janesville and Evansville-Peace UMC. Then I was appointed to Appleton-First UMC for 5 years.


I am married to my wonderful husband Eric Goodger. He is the son of Roger and Diane Goodger and grew up in Milton. We met in 4-H. We were both on the Court of Honors in 2003. From there we dated and got married in April of 2010. We are involved in the Rock River Thresheree in Edgerton. We ride his motorcycle, play with our two dogs Remi & Mila and 2 cats Opie & Buster, and shoot (him guns and me bow).


Eric is a diesel mechanic. He went to school at Blackhawk Tech. He currently works at Mandt Sandfill hauling sand, gravel, and dirt and also working on the dump trucks. Eric also works at his family farm just outside Janesville.


Together we have two wonderful children: Logan and Sophia. They were born in November of 2015.


I was appointed here to Brodhead UMC in July 2014. Though I haven't been here long, I am so looking forward to being a part of this wonderful community. I would like to build upon its loving, open, and loyal nature. I will teach confirmation to the 7-8 graders this year. In addition to preaching, I will also be doing weddings and funerals. It is my joy to be the pastor here at Brodhead United Methodist Church.


If I have not met you yet, introduce yourself to me on Sunday! I invite you to worship and hope to see you here!

My name is Danielle Jorgensen.  My family moved to Brodhead in 1999 and the first church we visited was Brodhead United Methodist, and we have been here since.  My husband, Jon, and I were married in April 1994 and have 3 children together.  Carter is the Pastor at Whig United Methodist Church in Platteville.  Collin currently drives for FS, and enjoys time with  cows and tractors.  Rachel is a freshman at URock studying Elementary Education and Dance.  Jon's daughter, Cheryl, lives in Delevan with our grandsons Conner and Zach. Jon drives milktruck for Strunz Trucking.

I have been actively involved with various youth programs since shortly after we moved here.  I have taught 4th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade Sunday School.   I have also been involved with most of the youth groups at one time or another.  I would have to say one of my favorite jobs is VBS!  It's so much fun that it's not work!  I love watching the kids during the week of VBS- after all the planning and prepping- and see the excitement of the unknown at the beginning of the week transform into an understanding of God's love for us as we head toward Friday's finale. 

I was blessed with the Christian Education Directors position in July of 2014, and I am still learning something new almost every day!  I am excited to try some new programs, while we also bring back those tried and true activites from the past.   I am delighted we are offering our Middle and High School youth more chances for service in our church.  We will also continue to add more Adult Bible Studies, as well as short topical studies throughout this year.

As we continue to look at program opportunities, I encourage you to stop in and visit!  I look forward to hearing from you with suggestions and ideas you would like to see incorporated into our event schedule.   See you in church!

My name is Denise. I am the custodian here at Brodhead UMC. You will find me cleaning, sorting, organizing, and pulling weeds. I also get to clean the church by taking gum off the pews, cleaning up after all our wonderful children, and cleaning up after Pastor Krystal's "experiments." I love my job and all the wonderful people who come in and out of the building.
