I am excited to be in my third year as the Pastor of Anna United Methodist Church.
As an award winning speaker, I feel that nothing is more awesome than getting to teach about Jesus. I love sharing Jesus' life, death, resurrection, and words. I believe that following Jesus makes life better and that following Jesus makes us better at life.
From Genesis to Revelation, the Bible is a message of God's love for us all. God loves us and wants us to live life in relationship with Him. My sermons focus on understanding and applying timeless and practical Biblical principles to real life in the ever-changing world.
My education includes both B.A. and J.D. degrees from Baylor. (Sic 'em Bears). I have completed 35 semester hours of seminary, mostly at TCU's Brite Divinity School. I currently hope to finish my master's degree at United Theological Seminary, a United Methodist seminary in Dayton, Ohio.
After college, I was a Naval Flight Officer serving as a Bombardier/Navigator flying A-6E Intruders from the aircraft carriers USS Constellation and USS Independence. I finished my naval service with 148 carrier landings and over 600 hours of jet flight time (Thanks for the jet fuel - I loved it!)
I serve Anna UMC as a bi-vocational Pastor. So, during the work week I balance my secular career as a lawyer and a business owner with serving the Church.
Please know, however, that I still will make time to visit you in the hospital and provide pastoral counseling. So, do not be afraid to give me a call.
I have been married to my wonderful wife Kris for over 30 years. Together we are the proud parents of four children, ages 17-25.
I would love to see you this Sunday morning or Wednesday night.
We are excited as Julie Mosier begins as our Director of Children's Ministry in July 2019. A child of the Church, Julie and her husband Glenn have attend our modern service - The Orchard since its inception.
In the coming days we will fill in Julie's background, provide her picture, and let her share her thoughts and goals for the Children's program at Anna UMC.
