Pastoral Change – July 1st.

In January Rev. Mark Steiger announced his retirement from full-time parish ministry effective July 1st.  On February 24th, it was announced that Bishop Malone has appointed Rev. Hoyte Wilhelm to serve our church.  Rev. Wilhelm is currently the pastor of Hudson United Methodist Church.

He grew up in Ada, Ohio where his father was a Chemistry Professor at Ohio Northern. He earned his Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration at Valparaiso University. Initially attracted to Higher Education Administration he earned a Master’s of Arts degree from Bowling Green University and began an 11 year career in that field – working at Albion College, Kenyon College, and the College of Wooster. 

In 1996 he felt clearly called to ministry and enrolled at the Methodist Theological School in Ohio where he earned his Master of Divinity degree.

The Wilhelm family includes two adult children: Megan and Timothy.  Rev. Wilhelm’s wife, Terri, is a Realtor with ReMax Realty where she has built a very successful career. Terri also has a music degree and has done music and community based ministry of her own.

Rev. Steiger will be actively working with Rev. Wilhelm to insure a smooth transition for the NOUMC congregation; and it will be a joy to welcome him and his family to our church.
