Your Staff Parish Relations Committee is pleased to announce that Bishop Larry Goodpaster has appointed Louis D. Timberlake to follow John Bletsch as our Associate Pastor. Louis graduates from the Divinity School of Duke University next weekend. Louis received his BA from Davidson College where his thesis was on emergent church worship.
His spent his childhood in the Dunwoody UMC in Atlanta and youth at Athens, Georgia First United Methodist Church. Louis worked throughout his academic years including: interning at Athens FUMC, a Lilly Endowment Ministry fellowship in Nashville, Associate Youth Director Davidson UMC and recently as a ministry intern at Grace UMC.
Louis is married to his high school sweetheart, Kate. Kate also attended Davidson College and is studying medicine at the Wake Forest School of Medicine, in order to practice family medicine in the future. They are the proud owners of Hobbs, a Wheaton Terrier, and enjoy hiking and camping in the mountain of NC.
Kate and I are both excited to be a part of the Christ UMC community! Having lived in Greensboro for the past two years, we've already witnessed the tremendous impact that this congregation has on the surrounding community. We look forward to getting to know you and serving alongside you in ministry!
Louis and Kate will join our church team in early July.
