Bishop Robert Farr, of the Missouri Area of The United Methodist Church, has appointed Rev. Andy Bryan as our new Lead Pastor, effective July 1, 2019. After serving Manchester United Methodist Church for 9 years Rev. Greg Weeks, retired June 30.

Rev. Andy comes to us from Campbell United Methodist Church in Springfield, Missouri. He is joined by his wife, Erin, and their three children. The Bryans also serve as a foster family.

Rev. Andy studied at Saint Paul School of Theology. He also studied vocal music and choral conducting at Truman State University in Kirksville, Missouri. He served as a church music director in Galesburg, Illinois for five years before God called him to pastoral ministry in 2000.

Manchester UMC invites everyone to meet Rev. Andy and his family. All are welcome here, period.
