The Staff Parish Relations Committee (SPRC) is delighted to introduce our new minister:  Rev. Dr. Barry E. Hughes.  His first Sunday at Suncreek UMC will be July 3rd.

Rev. Hughes comes to us from Perkins School of Theology at SMU.  His current assignment is the Professor of Supervised Ministry and the Associate Director of the Intern Program.

His prior United Methodist Church pastorates include those in Cleburne, Texas; Shreveport, Mandeville and Bossier City, Louisiana.  Some were suburban churches growing through building campaigns over several years.  His heart is in pastorate and preaching and will be a blessing to our church.

Rev. Hughes and his wife, Melody, live in Richardson with their basset hound. Melody is a paralegal at a downtown Dallas law firm.  They are anticipating a full immersion in the Allen Community and is extremely interested in learning and growing with all of our church families.  More details will follow.  Please keep the Hughes family and our church in your prayers.
