We lift prayers for our pastors, our congregation, our staff and our leadership as we prepare for these pastoral appointments effective July 1.
Pastor Tom Ballard is retiring after 35 years of vocational ministry in The United Methodist Church.
Pastor Kristen Burkhart will become the Senior Pastor at First UMC in Dandridge.
We will certainly miss Pastor Tom, Pastor Kristen and their families.
On Sunday, July 4, we are excited to welcome Don Hanshew as our new Senior Pastor and Chase Crickenberger as our new Associate Pastor.
