Pastors & Staff

UM4GI is supported by three appointed United Methodist Pastors

  • Reverend Trudy Kenyon Anderson; Senior Pastor of First-Faith, Office  308-384-5620
  • Reverend Kelly Karges; Senior Pastor of Trinity, Office  308-382-1952
  • Reverend Russ Anderson; Associate Pastor of Trinity, Office  308-382-1952

Several retired clergy are associated with the Parish

  • Rev. George Wheat (Pastor Emeritas)
  • Rev. Del Roper (Pastor Emeritas)

A great deal of work is undertaken by lay staff and volunteers.  While service to the church is something in which many members participate, a few are here providing essential and regular service in each of the three offices.
