Rev. Russ Abel

Rev. Russ Abel is a passionate follower of Jesus Christ and seeks to live a grace-filled presence in a hurting world. Russ grew up in rural southern Indiana and continues to feel a strong connection to “hills and trees” and finds solace and renewal there. He has lived in northern Indiana since his appointment in Fort Wayne in 2007. Being one of “those people” he loves the winter and spending time as far north as possible. Russ has served the East District since 2019 and the Northeast District since 2021. Growing up in a working-class home, Russ holds deeply the values he learned in that home and strives to remember his roots. He also is very thankful for his military service, Air Force, which helped awaken him to the beauty and blessing of diversity.

A graduate of Indiana University and Christian Theological (Magna) he was also inducted into The International Society of Theta Phi (an honor society for theological students). Ordained in 2000, he continues to be blessed, humbled, and excited by opportunities to serve Jesus. He is most passionate about helping people unlock the story of Jesus in their faith walk.

Russ is committed to his beautiful family and has been especially blessed by his wife, Michelle, of over 30 years and his children Emma (Chad) and Sam (Alyssa). Ask Russ about his grandkids, but make sure you have some time to listen, because he will talk for a long time about them.

Susie Wild

Susie nació y creció en Nueva Jersey, donde se licenció en Administración de Empresas y Alemán por la Universidad Rutgers. Aunque es nativa de la Costa Este, Fort Wayne ha sido su hogar durante los últimos 24 años y también donde ella y su marido, Chris, decidieron criar juntos a sus 4 hijos. Susie ha pasado la mayor parte de su tiempo aquí en Fort Wayne criando a sus hijos y siendo la esposa de un pastor.

Ahora que se enfrenta a un nido vacío, Susie está dispuesta a dedicar su tiempo y dones en una capacidad administrativa y está deseando servir a la Iglesia Metodista Unida. En su tiempo libre, le gusta hacer ejercicio, mantenerse sana, la jardinería, y mochilera.

Tricia Williams

Tricia was born and raised in the West District of the INUMC, and now lives and serves in the East District. She loves discipling God’s people to help them grow in their faith, and journey with them as they learn through our Lay Servant Ministries classes how God has equipped them to serve in our local churches. When she is not building relationships in the community where she serves as a Licensed Local Pastor, chances are you will find her cheering on her son, Mason, at his baseball games.

Oración

"Dios de gracia y redención, nos inclinamos ante Ti para pedirte que siembres nueva vida entre nosotros. Anhelamos poner a la gente en relación con Jesús y ayudarles a profundizar en su conocimiento, seguimiento y servicio en nuestras comunidades. Ámanos, guíanos, dirígenos, perdónanos y ayúdanos a estar atentos en nuestra escucha Que nuestras oraciones y expectativas no estén limitadas por "lo que podemos pedir o imaginar". Ven Espíritu Santo, llénanos mientras celebramos la resurrección. Habla, que tus siervos te escuchan.

Amén".
