Meet the pastor

michael-fergusonHello, my name is Michael Ferguson, and I am thrilled to be a part of Colbert UMC. I graduated from Asbury Seminary in Wilmore, Ky., in 2015 with a Master of Divinity degree.

My wife Amanda and I have been married over 21 years and have a daughter, Natalie, who is 12 and starting seventh grade this fall. In my spare time, I like to travel, play bass, and exercise.

My family and I are excited to be a part of this wonderful congregation, and we are looking forward to this next chapter here at Colbert UMC!!

There are two areas that I want to see our church grow. Those are missions and discipleship. Missions means going out into the world and spreading the love and good news of Jesus Christ. The world is our parish, and our parish is our community too!!  Jesus didn’t tell us to go and make more church members—He told us to make disciples!! I want to see us know Christ better and grow in Christ together and I look forward to doing that with you here at Colbert!!
