Dr. John Ed Mathison

This Sunday we are delighted to welcome Dr. John Ed Mathison as our guest preacher. John Ed is a national speaker and is very knowledgeable in the area of stewardship. We are especially grateful for his willingness to inspire all of us for our campaign to BE RENEWED.

John Ed comes from a family of Methodist pastors with exceptional ministry genes. His Father Si Mathison preached until he was 100! John Ed’s brother, George, was the pastor at Auburn First United Methodist Church for over 25 years. John Ed is married to Lynn and they make their home in Montgomery.

Dr. Mathison is best known for his tremendous growth leadership as Senior Pastor of the Frazer Memorial United Methodist Church for 36 years. Frazer UMC, during much of this time, was the fastest growing United Methodist Church in America. The church offered an annual “Church Growth Seminar” for decades, that trained both pastors and laity across our Nation, with some of the keys for church growth. Many consider John Ed a mentor and friend across the Nation. John Ed is still in demand as a guest preacher.

John Ed is an author and has written several books. Two of his books are about stewardship, Treasures of the Transformed Life and Every Member in Ministry. Both of these books present stewardship as something that unlocks joy for everyone. We are indeed honored to welcome Dr. John Ed Mathison, Sunday to be our BE RENEWED preacher for our day. Please extend a warm Shalimar UMC welcome to Dr. John Ed Mathison!

As we have been renewing our hearts, minds, spirits, and strength, please make every effort to attend worship Sunday in person or by livestream. After John Ed preaches, we will invite everyone to give their 2021 BE RENEWED commitments. There will be four ways we can turn in our commitments.

· In person at worship
· By mail
· Online
· Drive by to drop off at 3PM Sunday in front of the Family Life Center.

We look forward to a special Sunday!
