Notice of Death: The Rev. Dr. Ted Weeden

It is with a heavy heart that I announce the death of the Rev. Dr. Ted Weeden, Senior Minister Emeritus of Asbury First. Dr. Weeden was appointed to Asbury First in 1977 and served for seventeen years, laying the groundwork for so much of the mission and ministry we celebrate today. He once called his years as the Senior Minister at Asbury First the happiest of his life and we are a better congregation because of his witness and service. Personally, I am indebted to Dr. Weeden for his constant support and faithful advice. He was a brilliant man with a generous heart who lived a life of faith we would all do well to follow.

His service will be held on July 8 at 11 am. If you are interested in being a part of a group considering how we might formally honor Dr. Weeden’s life and legacy, please contact me at In the meantime, please hold his family and friends in your prayers.

In Christ,
