Pastor Joe Chamness, Senior Pastor

Pastor Joe is the new pastor here at Edge Park UMC.  He knows many of the people here as his father, Gene Chamness served at St. Paul UMC in the mid 70s.  He met his wife there and served in the US Air Force before working at General Dynamics (now Lockheed-Martin) as they raised their family.  In late 1997 Joe was called to the ministry and overnight his wife and teenage children learned what it meant to be in a preacher's family!  Now that he has served in the ministry over 20 years, and been blessed with 5 grandchildren, he is looking forward to serving Edge Park UMC.
