June 26 marks the beginning of a new chapter in the ministry of St. John's as we welcome a new associate pastor, Ryan Powell. A native of Monroe, Ryan comes to Rock Hill from the Hartsville District, where he served as pastor of Zoar United Methodist Church in Cheraw for two years. However, Ryan is no stranger to Rock Hill, having lived and worked in the area before his appointment to Zoar. Joining Pastor Ryan are his wife, Dana, and their children, Hudson (age 5) and Peyton (age 3). They are looking forward to joining our church family and enjoying all the things Rock Hill has to offer. In his free time, Pastor Ryan enjoys spending time with his family, fly fishing, woodworking, and golfing. He's also a big sports fan, cheering for the Kentucky Wildcats, Carolina Panthers, and Charlotte Hornets. Pastor Ryan is very excited to begin his ministry at St. John's. His first Sunday with us will be June 30. Please take a moment over the next few weeks to introduce yourself to the Powell family and welcome them to our church!
