I have the wonderful joy of serving as Lead Pastor to this amazing church. Please take your time to look at the various ministry areas.

No matter where you are in your journey of faith, there is a place for you at Royston First United Methodist Church and we invite you to explore and experience the way God is working in your life. I am happy to meet you and discuss the church, what you might be looking for in a church home, or any other questions you may have. I hope to see you soon.
