Joel Plisek Next Chapter

Little did I know six years ago that I would be appointed to my longest and most fruitful ministry of all time. Some of my favorite memories from FUMCGC include ministry to nursing homes, starting the broken chains ministry, and the wonderful people we met at Finney County Jail, going on confirmation trips, the chapel with the preschool, being a chaplain at the hospital, parades during Christmas, Numana meals, and the list could go on and on. I want to thank everyone for your prayers, love, and support during these six years.

As I enter this new season of ministry at Pleasant Valley UMC, I take with me all the things I have learned here. I want to thank Pastor Tod for agreeing to bring me to Garden City as his associate. I want to thank Pastor Charles for helping me in so many ways, one of those is through his leadership. I want to thank Missy Allen for assisting me in my ministry to the children, you have a gift and people are blessed to have you here. I want to thank Jenny Maier for all her support and encouragement. She always went above and beyond the call of duty in so many things. I want to thank Sean Boller for his gift of music and for blessing us each Sunday in worship. I want to thank Hunter Haack for stepping up in the role of an administrative assistant, for your help and for being the first person people see when they come to the office, and for making them feel welcome.
