What's Happening at BJUMC

As has been shared twice by our SPRC, Pastor Matt will be leaving us the end of June 2023. We give praise to God, and thanks for the gifts and service he has brought to us over his 4 year tenure ad BJUMC.

As we look forward to what's next, we share news of our next Pastor, Dave Tillisch, who will begin leading our church on July 1, 2023. Pastor Matt and Pastor Tillisch will be working together over the next several months to ensure a smooth transfer, and continuation of important ministries of BJUMC. We are pleased to have such a wonderful new appointment coming to our church this summer. Click here to read more about Pastor Tillisch in our April Tower Bell.
