OUR TEAM

Rev. Robert F. Fuchs
"Pastor Bob"
Pastor

I became a United Methodist as many others have, I married a life-long Methodist, Sue.  Once I started attending the United Methodist Church I discovered that I was Wesleyan. If you don’t know what that means, just ask.

 

God has always been pursuing me and will not let go of me.  When I was in the business world, I ministered to others on a regular basis. God was preparing me through both success and failure.  In 2015, after a 35+ year business career, I listened to God’s call and became a Licensed Local Pastor.  It is the best decision I have ever made.

 

I love God and I love people.  It brings me joy to see people connect to Jesus Christ and follow his commandment to love one another.  There is (almost) nothing I will not do, no matter how serious or silly, mainstream or unconventional, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with others.
