Pastor Profiles

As you discern God’s call to serve as a local pastor within The United Methodist Church, it often helps to hear the stories of others who have answered the call and the resources available to help you navigate the process. 

Below you will find profiles from local pastors who have completed the Licensing and Course of Study Program, along with the opportunities and challenges that met them along their journey. Each quarter, we will bring you new pastor profiles.
