The Staff Parish Relations Committee (SPRC) is delighted to introduce Senior Pastor:  Rev. Dr. Barry E. Hughes.  His first Sunday at Suncreek UMC was July 3, 2016.

Rev. Hughes came to us from Perkins School of Theology at SMU where he was a Professor of Supervised Ministry and the Associate Director of the Intern Program.

His prior United Methodist Church pastorates include those in Cleburne, Texas; Shreveport, Mandeville and Bossier City, Louisiana.  Some were suburban churches growing through building campaigns over several years.  His heart is in pastorate and preaching and will be a blessing to our church.

Rev. Hughes and his wife, Melody, live in Richardson. Melody is a paralegal at a downtown Dallas law firm.  Please keep the Hughes family and our church in your prayers.
