Pastor Todd

Todd is our lead pastor and loves this church and community. For over 30 years he has been a worship and youth pastor, a senior pastor, and loves helping others discover and develop their spiritual gifts to reach their full potential in service to God. If you want to catch him on a day off, you’ll probably find him on an ATV ripping through the mud, on a shoreline casting for bass, or hunting with his dog, Boomer (yeah—so did we mention Todd is from Oklahoma?). Todd, his wife Lisa, our staff and all of us look forward to welcoming you to Ulysses FUMC.
