2015
INSIDE THIS ISSUE

Let Me Introduce Myself:


I have enthusiastically served the United Methodist Church for fourteen years. My
first twelve years of ministry was spent serving the youth of First United Methodist,
Madison Fl. It was during this time that I fully surrendered to a calling that had been
persistently wooing me, that of Pastor. I began my studies at Asbury Theological
Seminary, Orlando in the fall of 2008 and graduated with my Masters of Divinity in
2013. I have served Lee UMC since and I absolutely consider it an honor and a privilege to be Pastor to Gods people.
I have traveled the globe on mission and for education. I believe that the Church is
the hope of the world. Disciples of Christ are all gifted and empowered by the Holy
Spirit to live by faith, be known by Love, and offer voices of Hope. This is the proper
response of those whose lives have been redeemed and are being renewed by Gods
grace offered to us in Jesus Christ.
My wife and I have been married for fourteen blessed years and have a daughter,
Abbey, and I have a son Bryce. Faith was born and raised in Thousand Oaks California until moving to Madison, Fl. at age twelve. I couldnt survive in ministry without
Faith (both faith in God and my wife Faith of course ;-). Faith is the strong-silent,
hard- working type. You will not find her speaking and preaching in front of crowds
but you will find her faithfully serving and working hard to support her husband, family, and the Church. I love being a father and a husband, and I couldnt make it without
the loving support of my family.
I consider it a great joy and honor to live and serve in
the Florida Annual Conference of The United Methodist
Church. I am looking forward to meeting all of you and
worshiping together on Sunday, July 5th.
Stay Blessed,
Pastor Brian

ANNUAL
CONFERENCE
This year's Annual
Conference will take
place June 10-13.
This is the one time
of the year where our
churches gather
with the Bishop and
we discuss the
direction of the
Florida Conference.
Please be in prayer
for those attending
that our minds
will be open
and our hearts
will be listening
as God leads us.

Prayer serves as the backbone of the church. It is what supports


all our efforts of ministry. In that spirit, you are invited to hold
these persons in your prayers and thoughts. Just as the Spirit
needs healing, so does the body. The two, it seems, go together in
Gods plan.

Please remember these people in prayer:
