Welcome to Downtown First Church!


My wife Rebecca and I, along with our four children Regan Iris, Jerry Joe, Graclyn Lee and Finley Rose came to Mitchell First UMC in 2012. I joined the Pastoral staff in April 2016 and I am excited for what God is doing in and outside the walls of our historic Church. As your Connection Pastor here at Downtown First, I have the privilege of welcoming God's deciples into our community of faith. I am very passionate about our congregational care ministry and am surrounded around the greatest team one could ask for. 


I was born and raised in Arvada, Colorado. I have a degree from from Dakota Wesleyan University (BA in History/Communication), and I am currently pursuing a Master in Divinity. I am a proud alumni of DWU and a former Tiger football player and wrestler. I retired from the U.S Army in 2008 and served a tour as an infantry team leader in Operation Iraqi Freedom. I have called Mitchell my Home since 2010 and cant imagine being happier elswhere. 


Again, welcome to Downtown Mitfhell First Church and may God bless you and your family!


Pastor Jerry
