Rev. Westmoreland
Senior Pastor

“By the grace of God, I’ve been called to ministry and to the specific work of an ordained elder in the United Methodist Church. That is a gift, a privilege, a challenge. For me this means: to live and breathe the grace of God; to share with those who are hurting or grieving the mercy, care, and promise of Christ; to preach to the depths of life with integrity, diligence, creativity, and a lightness appropriate to Christ’s good news; to lift before the congregation the hope and promise of God’s kingdom and the call we all share to serve that kingdom here and now; and, finally, to discern with you the will of God for our church now, tomorrow, and beyond.” Read Bio

Adam Witter
Director of Middle School Ministry

“I believe there is no better way to lead students to Christ than through the local church. To that end, I feel that it is crucial to disciple the next generation to continue on its legacy. It is my desire that our students have a faith that sticks after graduation, and I believe this is done best through an authentic gospel presentation, in the mobilization of students being in church through service, and through partnership with parents.”
