“I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength, that He considered me faithful, appointing me to His service.” 1 Timothy 1:12

This is a place where you’ll see snapshots of some of the team members who serve at Mt. Pleasant United Methodist Church (paid and unpaid). They’re real people, with real challenges, and real life stories, just like you.
Our Staff are here to answer your questions and to encourage you to experience for yourself the MPC Difference. Here you will learn more about our own faith journey — from the books we read, the movies that inspire us, the teams we root for on the weekend, and especially what drew us to Mt. Pleasant. So go ahead and ask them why they’re here, what they hope for and what ‘church’ means to them. They’re dying to tell you! You may just find you have far more in common then you ever knew. Welcome!

Rev. Dr. Steve Gedon

Sr. Pastor
Steve joined Mt. Pleasant on July 1, 2015 and has been in a steep learning curve ever since! Steve shares a passion for Christ in new ways that helps people imagine a different kind of life. So often we feel trapped by schedules, unreasonable expectations and the relentless financial pressures to have more and get more. I’ve learned over the years that life isn’t really about having and getting, but about being and becoming. I like to imagine what we can become as a church, together.
