As many of you know, I will be retiring this year. I am at that point in my journey of ministry where the Lord is leading us to move to Bryan, Texas to be close to our sons and their families and our four grandchildren. My last Sunday to preach will be June 17th. Cindy and I have enjoyed serving you. You are a great congregation and we have been blessed by your love and support.
Your new pastor is Rev. Guy Williams. Guy has served in youth or pastoral ministry for over twenty years in Missouri, Kentucky and Texas. For the past seventeen years, he has served as a pastor in the Texas Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church. He is married to Abby and they have three wonderful children, Ben (12 years old, 7th grade), Ellie (11 years old, 5th grade) and Olivia (9 years old, 4th grade).
Guy is a graduate of Texas A&M University and has a Masters of Divinity degree from Asbury Seminary. He is an ordained elder in full connection and has served numerous churches in the Texas Annual Conference. Cindy and I are excited that you are getting a young, visionary pastor who loves God and serves Him well. I am confident that Guy and his family will discover a warm, loving congregation here in Dayton and that he and his family will fall in love with you just as Cindy and I have!
In the peace of Christ,
Garry & Cindy
