On Monday, January 19, the Staff Parish Committee met with District Superintendent Rev. Doug Rorex. Rev. Rorex introduced the new pastor and his wife, who will begin serving this church on July 1 of this year.

They are Rev. Robert and Gretchen Taylor. Robert has served a church in Carlinville since 2006. Before that, he pastored churches at Mr. Carmel (1996-2006); Fairview Center (1991-1996) and Roodhouse-Manchester (1985-1991).

Bob likes to hunt, fish and he referees. Gretchen is an accomplished pianist. They have one son, who is married and lives in Springfield.

Please be in prayer for our church, Pastor Mark and Nancy, and Pastor Bob and Gretchen, during this time of change.
