CHURUBUSCO – The United Methodist Church of Churubusco has welcomed a new Senior Pastor, Reverend John Huff, and his family to Churubusco.
Reverend Huff comes to Churubusco from The United Methodist Church in Hagerstown, Indiana.
He and his wife, Jen, met at Methodist Theological School (Ohio) where they both attended. Pastor John grew up in Jennings County, southern Indiana. Jen grew up in Ohio and Illinois.
John attended Indiana University where he studied religion, and is an avid Hoosier fan. Jen served as a deacon in Richmond, Indiana.
John sees himself as serving primarily to bring people to Christ, and that the most important goal should be to love others as Christ loves mankind. John believes in serving the parish through involvement and interaction with the community at all levels.
Jen plans to take a break from her ministry to help her family make the transition through the move and into a new environment, and she looks forward to getting involved in John’s ministry in any way she can.
The Huffs became a “forever” family in 2018, when they adopted their three beautiful children into foster care. Foster care has been an important part of their family ministry since 2014. Arianna “Ari” is 7 years old and will be entering third grade. Elijah “Eli” is 6 years old and he will be entering first grade. Kenzie is 4 years old and she will be entering kindergarten.
John enjoys exploring the outdoors and sports. Jen enjoys reading, watching movies, and trying new foods and restaurants. Their family enjoys camping, playing games, and spending time with their Goldendoodle, Punkin.
