Reverend Michael Morris of Egg Harbor got his calling to serve God by first serving in the United States Marine Corps. Morris was deployed to Vietnam in 1966 and during his tour, he was pressed into service as a spiritual leader.
After returning home, Reverend Morris finished his college courses at a seminary. He now serves as pastor of Calvary United Methodist Church in Egg Harbor and Zion United Methodist Church near Baileys Harbor. Morris is shared his story and insights at a veterans dinner at Corpus Christi Church. He reminds veterans that they still serve even if it’s been decades since they wore a uniform.
Reverend Morris served along the DMZ in Vietnam from 1966-1969.
