Welcome Rev. Mitch Todd

Dear Members and Friends of Grace,

I am pleased to announce the appointment of Rev. Mitch Todd as an Associate Pastor at Grace United Methodist Church. Similar to future Sr. Pastor Barry Dundas, Pastor Mitch will begin his time serving at Grace on July 1, 2023.

Pastor Mitch is currently the Campus Minister at K-State Wesley and has 20 years’ experience as a United Methodist Clergy, serving in Manhattan, Lawrence, Topeka, Mulvane, and Wamego throughout his ministry. He lives in Manhattan with his wife (Jan) and their dog (Tom Petty). Jan is a retired United Methodist pastor and is currently a professor of sociology at Emporia State University. Mitch and Jan share a passion for music – both are songwriters, and Mitch plays the keyboards and drums. Mitch is also a writer, having published two volumes of devotions from his website www.weeklydevotion.com. Mitch and Jan are enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead at Grace and cannot wait to serve our community.

Your SPRC is looking forward to helping the congregation welcome Pastor Mitch this summer. As always, if you have any questions, please reach out to me or other members of the SPRC. We thank you for your support during this transition process, and we are excited about the future God has in store for Grace.
