You are welcome into our doors.

Welcome to the Meridian District of the United Methodist Church. It is my honor to serve as the district superintendent of this district. These six counties of the state have a historic and rich history in the life of the church and of the state and of the many communities which surround us. As I travel around the district I can see that we are comprised of churches of all sizes, of all types of diversity, and of a variety of visions of how each can fit into the Kingdom work of our Lord. I am excited about our journey as we work together during the next few years. With enthused laypersons and clergy who are who are excited about the work we have to do, there is no reason why this district cannot look to the future as the best years yet. As we set goals for ourselves and for our churches and allow the Holy Spirit to empower us to reach those goals, it is my prayer that we can aim high, pray unceasingly, build community, do the work of our Savior, and then with joy, claim the prize which lies before us.
