Pastor Mel comes to Jacksonville from the Bonfield Grand Prairie Parish. He has also served the Minonk, Wenona, Dana, Tonica, Richland and Lostant United Methodist Churches. His theology, or understanding of God, is derived from the Lord’s amazing forgiveness. He believe all need to come to know the grace of God which can create true, life-long forgiveness a reality. Mel is primarily responsible to oversee and support the staff team, encourage financial stewardship, help plan and lead worship, and enable the basic administration of the congregation so that Centenary can fulfill its God-given work to the best of its ability.
