Big news –New Pastor Appointed to HUMC
The New England Conference Bishop has appointed
Pastor John Robbins to HUMC effective July 1st.
Pastor John Robbins was raised in suburban New Jersey and Massachusetts. A graduate of Hobart College in upstate New York, he worked extensively in the editing, design, and production of college textbooks. Following his call to pastoral ministry, he completed his theological work at the United Methodist Course of Study School of Ohio’s extension in rural West Virginia. He has pastored churches in Holbrook, Saugus, Stoneham, Weymouth, and Winthrop, all in Massachusetts, as well as in corinth, Maine. He also has worked with special-needs adults in a group home setting. He currently serves on the Conference Disabilities Committee and the Board of Ordained Ministry, where he co-chairs the Licensed Local Pastors Committee.
John’s desire is that the church gather for worship in the face of God’s transforming presence, encourage and build one another up as disciples, and go forth as Christ’s ambassadors equipped by the spirit to engage the world for the glory of God and eternal kingdom.
John and his wife, Roberta are the parents of three girls.
The Bishop and Cabinet have appointed Rev. John Holt to be a mentor to both John and the newly appointed part-time pastor in Chatham. In addition to joining us in worship once a month, Rev. Holt will be meeting with both pastors, in person and through phone calls weekly, to review and plan. A specific schedule of topics to be addressed has already been put in place. If you would like additional information, please speak with Valerie Bell.
We welcome Pastor John and will keep he, his family and the Rev. John Holt in our prayers.
