New Lead Pastor
Rev. Andy Bryan Joins July 1, 2019
After serving Manchester United Methodist Church for over 8 years, our current Lead Pastor, Rev. Greg Weeks, will retire on July 1, 2019. Pastor Greg brought energy, enthusiasm, insight, and a warm smile to every service. He will be missed.
Bishop Robert Farr, of the Missouri Area of The United Methodist Church, has appointed Rev. Andy Bryan as our new Lead Pastor. He begins on July 1, 2019; his first sermon at Manchester UMC will be the weekend of July 6-7.
Pastor 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.
Pastor 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 Pastor Andy and his family. All are welcome here. Period.Share this:
