In a few lines, here is my faith story…

My wife, Stephanie and I re-committed ourselves to an intentional  journey with Jesus Christ while in Atlanta, GA., but I had sensed long ago that God might be leading  me into full time ministry. I worked in the chemical industry for a number of years, and served as an active layman. During that time, Stephanie and I had four children, and the closer we came to God, the more God’s call became inescapable. My road through seminary and as a pastor has been a family journey. Christ has always been there. He’ll be there for you too!

I am passionate about Jesus, my daughter, life, music, coffee and books. Becoming a part of the ministry at MUMC has been truly miraculous. As Director of Youth Ministry/Worship Leader, it is an incredible honor to witness God move powerfully through the lives of our teenagers and sharing that love with others. I also find great joy in worshipping God through music. I love singing, piano, guitar and simply anything musical.

Bookkeeper, Gayle Woods

I started working at MUMC in February 2007 as your bookkeeper and what a blessing it has been… You have embraced me and our family(our grandkids have been coming to VBS for 4 summers now) and Tim and I felt the call to “officially” become Methodists this past summer.  MUMC has truly made us feel at home… part of a loving, caring church family and a wonderful place to continue our faith walk with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
