Who We Are

    We have been so blessed with Dr. Ed Glaize’s leadership these past 4 years. It is with great sadness we will soon have to say goodbye to him as he is being appointed to serve as the District Superintendent of the Dothan District this summer. His last Sunday preaching in our services will be Sunday, June 9. Mark your calendars for an 8:30 traditional service that day and an 11:00 combined service in the CLC, followed by his favorite, a grilled hotdog lunch.

    In July, Dr. Darren McClellan will be coming to Fairhope UMC as our new Senior Pastor. Many of you know Dr. McClellan already as he is currently serving as our District Superintendent.  At our request, the bishop has also appointed an additional associate pastor to work with us in the areas of Evangelism and Hospitality. Ontonio Christie will be joining our staff to serve in that capacity. Rev. Laura Parker will continue on staff, focusing her ministry on Discipleship and Assimilation Ministries. Our new pastors’ first Sunday will be July 7. We will again that day have an 8:30 traditional service and a combined 11:00 service in the CLC with
    Dr. McClellan preaching. We will be hosting a reception for you to meet our new pastors and their families after the 11:00 service on the 7th. You can read bios on our new pastors by navigating the menu to the right.
