Excellent opportunities for service and personal growth
FULL TIME MINISTER (Former Employee) – Iowa – April 6, 2016
The United Methodist Church in Iowa has been a blessing to me. The weekly tasks of preaching, teaching, visiting the sick, meetings, weddings, and funerals, have provided me with opportunities to serve several communities, large and small, while also allowing me to grow spiritually and faithfully. I have also discovered new interests, especially my 20 years of volunteer work in our church camping program, which has also generated more volunteers for this program from the men and women who have worked with me. I have also been active in efforts to relieve the causes and effects of hunger throughout the world, and will continue to do so through my retirement. For all this, I can thank the Iowa UMC for the opportunities to serve and discover who I am as a pastor and a believer.
