Meet our new Senior Pastor
Keeping with the United Methodist tradition, it is that time of year that pastoral appointments are made by the Bishop and his cabinet. We have been truly blessed to have our current pastor reappointed here at Georgetown First, year after year after year, for thirteen years! We all understand that Greg, along with his wife, Connie, will be moving on to another season in their lives called retirement. We know that they will continue to be blessed and be a blessing for others during the coming years in North Carolina.
And this leads us to our new pastor:
We are pleased to announce that Pastor Phillip Hogg has been appointed to Georgetown First. His first Sunday with us will be June 21. Phil has been serving at Asbury United Methodist in Highland Heights, Kentucky for the last 9 years and comes here along with his wife Janet. Phil and Janet have 3 adult sons and 4 grandchildren: Phillip (Jenny, Nathan, Jaden), Christopher (Sarah, Sadie, Bennett) and Andrew (Kristen). Two of their sons live in the Lexington area. Phil enjoys playing music, woodworking and golf. He’s a fan of the Cincinnati Reds and UK sports (Go Big Blue!).
Phillip has served in the campus ministry at Morehead State University for 17 years and in the local church for 18 years. The SPRC knows after speaking with Phillip, that he and his wife are really excited to be coming to Georgetown First and the opportunity to meet with each and every member of their new church family.
Phil says of his appointment, “I have heard only good things about Georgetown First UMC and am very excited to partner with this church in continued ministry to the community. The SPRC has already made us feel welcome through a Zoom call. We are anxious to meet each of you and to further our journeys in Jesus together.”
