The Bishop is appointing Rev. Christine Shiber to be our pastor from July 1, 2015. Pastor Christine was ordained in 1980 and brings with her many years of pastoral experience. She is currently serving as pastor of St. Andrew’s UMC in Palo Alto, and is a spiritual director and a mentor to seminary students. We pray that God’s Spirit will guide her in this transition, and look forward to welcoming her to Byron.
Our United Methodist pastors take a vow of itinerancy when they are ordained, and promise to serve wherever they are called. The Bishop and Cabinet take this very seriously praying hard, listening to the Holy Spirit, and matching pastors gifts and graces with churches needs and vision.
