Our Pastor

 

Pastor Steve Fisher

 

Reverend Steve Fisher became our Pastor July 1, 2015.  Pastor Steve received his undergraduate degree from Tiffin University, Tiffin OH and the Master's of Divinity from The Methodist Theological School in Ohio, Delaware OH.  He was ordained a Deacon and probationary member of the West Ohio Conference in 1998 and ordained an Elder in full connection in 2000.

Pastor Steve has served as Pastor of Waldo UMC, Waldo Ohio (1994-2001), four assignments as an Air Force Chaplain (2001-2011), and has served the last four years as Senior Pastor of West Independence UMC, Fostoria OH.  He believes his ministry call is to support and encourage people in the journey of life, through the Grace and Love of God, as witnessed in Jesus Christ.  His life verse is Proverbs 3:5-6:  "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight."

Pastor Steve and his wife, Sharon, married in June 1984.  They have four grown children and five grandchildren.  Prior to retiring from the Air Force, they've lived and served in Florida, the Philippines, Ohio, Wyoming, England, Texas, and Alaska.  

 

Pastor Steve and Sharon are excited about the appointment to First & First Samoan UMCs in Anchorage!  In their leisure, Steve and Sharon enjoy time with family and friends, the outdoors, gardening, traveling, hiking, fishing, camping and Ohio State Football.
