Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ! My name is Doug Silvers and I am the Pastor at Welch Chapel UMC. I have been involved in ministry for over 20 years, beginning as a youth volunteer. After being a volunteer for a few years God put me in a place of leadership over youth in a volunteer role. This turned into a full time position after serving for many years. In total I served over 15 years in youth ministry. But in 2005 God put a call on my heart to step out into pastoral work. So, by working through the clergy program that the UMC Church provides I became a licensed local pastor. I was sent to Welch Chapel in June of 09.

Things since then have flourished with the help of wonderful volunteers and a congregation that truly seeks to be as Christ. I would like to invite you to be a part of our church family. Our doors are always open and we look forward to seeing you in the near future. God Bless and keep you.
