God is writing the vision for the Children’s Ministry and she following His leading. Jessica is very excited to share God’s word with our children through reading, skits and missions. The children will be taught Bible character lessons each week with application and reinforcements that can relate to their life here and now. She feels it is her calling to make sure to equip both the children and their parents with the necessary resources and support to nurture young hearts and minds so they grow to love their Savior.
Jessica feels blessed with the privilege of serving here at Wintersville United Methodist Church as the children’s director. Jessica and her family are thankful to be a part of this church family and for the godly people who have adopted and loved them. Jessica is supported by her husband Rufus and her two beautiful children Jayden and Will.
Proverbs 22:6 “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.”
“Tif” has been in full time youth ministry since 2000. She has been in Ministry here at WUMC since 2008. After growing up in Jefferson County, Ohio she moved to North Carolina where she met her wonderful husband of 21 years Jeff. After many years in full time ministry in Clayton, NC Tif felt like God was calling her back home to serve. Tif loves our youth and what she enjoys most is going on mission trip outings and Lakeside Institute. She enjoys meeting young people where they are, journeying with them, and seeing them use their spiritual gifts to help build God’s kingdom. She is both blessed and proud to be serving as youth pastor in the community she grew up in. She loves all of the people at WUMC and enjoys letting out her “inner child” as she serves God by interacting with the youth. Tif enjoys watching Syracuse basketball, spending time with family, and hanging out with friends at Lakeside. Her most favorite thing in the world is her daughter Emily and cat Buddy.
Susan has been working at the church for 13 years as the secretary. She grew up in church, but strengthen by faith in the Lord in my early 20’s. She enjoys her job and is grateful to serve the Lord through her work here at the church. She has been married to her husband Jerry for 35 years and has two adult children and one grandchild. She enjoys spending time with her family, babysitting her granddaughter and watching and cheering on the Cleveland Cavaliers Basketball Team.
Pastor Clint Quillen Jr. and his family were appointed to WUMC in July 2000 and he loves being the pastor here. He believes, “It is such a blessing and privilege to be in ministry together with such a wonderful church family.” Words from the apostle Paul written centuries ago to the church at Rome reflect Pastor Clint’s feelings regarding the Wintersville UM Church congregation today. “I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now” (Romans 1:3-5). There truly is a partnership in ministry at WUMC between the staff, lay persons, and the pastor, and Pastor Clint is so thankful to be a part of this team.
Pastor Clint’s formal schooling includes majoring in Christian Ministries at Malone College, attending Columbia Biblical Seminary, graduating with a Master of Divinity degree from Ashland Theological Seminary, and working diligently to complete his Doctor of Ministry degree in Apologetics from Southern Evangelical Seminary.
Pastor Clint is a dedicated husband, father, and “Poppa” who loves his family very much. He and his wife, Ann, have been married for 35 years and he is grateful for her partnership in life, as well as in ministry. They have three grown sons, three lovely daughters-in-law, and three wonderful grandchildren with a 4th on the way! Playing disc golf together is a favorite family pastime and Pastor Clint is proud of the fact that he even wins occasionally!
Accepting God’s gift of salvation at age 17 at church camp, Pastor Clint’s life was forever changed. He believes strongly in the truth of God’s Word, the unconditional love of Christ, and in God’s call upon each of our lives to receive His grace, embrace His love, and live a life of love and service for God and others. Believing faithful churches and individual Christians are to be characterized by GROWTH, COMPASSION, and HOPE, three of his favorite scriptures express this so well. “So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in Him, rooted and built up in Him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness” (Colossians 2:6-7), “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God” (2 Corinthians 1:3-4), and
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit” (Romans 15:13). May the message of these verses be fulfilled in your life as well.
