“For the past 15 years, I’ve never struggled to begin a work day with anything but enthusiasm and passion! What I get to do here, my job, it matters. Through the INUMC’s camping ministry, I get to be a part of Christ’s transforming power in people’s lives through the camp and retreat experiences. Those renewed and energized people carry that hope and light of Christ back into their homes and communities. Whether I’m leading teams of volunteers, working with budgets, hosting ministry events, or working in communications, each step of my day is an opportunity to live out my calling in ministry.”

Ryan Gernand, Sr. Manager of Student and Special Needs Ministries

“Being in Benefits Administration for so many years, I have become a wealth of knowledge and wisdom, with a very big splash of exploratory creativity. This gift allows me to have a deep compassion and empathy for others. We all have spiritual gifts and mine are geared to help other people keep the faith and maintain an even keel in life’s storms. If I can lessen the storms through everyday positive interaction then that’s one less storm that just blew them over.”

Linda Eskew, Benefits Assistant

“For many years, I have had a strong call to vocational lay ministry. The administration and organizational management of a ministry often plays second fiddle to the more visible aspects of programming. However, the appropriate implementation of administrative and organizational strategies is a key aspect of ministry success. In my current role of Director of Administration and Financial Services, I find myself in a position to provide leadership that encourages my team to provide a firm basis for administration within the Indiana Conference. It is my hope that this administrative foundation provides the core ministry areas of Connectional Ministries, Church Development, and Leadership Development with the foundation to allow each area to flourish. This, in turn, will support and equip the connection of local congregations, The Conference, to fulfill the Vision, Mission and Wildly Important Goal (WIG) of the United Methodist Churches of Indiana.”

Ian Hall, Director of Administrative & Financial Services

“I believe that young people are the church now, not just the future of the church. My role within INUMC has allowed me to speak this truth into action within the team I work alongside, as well as, with church leaders throughout Indiana. I have a deep love for young people and the church. I trust that as we empower and develop emerging leaders the church will be profoundly impacted.”

Emily Krach, Associate Director of Leadership Development - Emerging Leaders
