Rev. Jeremey Lundergan, Pastor

Hi, I’m Pastor Jeremey and I am thrilled to be here at Odessa First and Wellington UMC!  My wife Celeste and I have 2 grown children, 1 grandchild, and 3 dogs. I previously served as a youth leader for over twenty years and as lead pastor for One Spirit UMC in Kansas City, MO from 2016 until 2020. I completed my undergraduate education – and met my wife at – MU. I received a Juris Doctorate from the University of Pittsburgh and my theological education at St. Paul School of Theology in Kansas City. I am also a musician and have been part of local music in the KC area since 2008. I come to the ministry after a career in labor and employment law, which I believe has given me additional insight into the day-to-day joys and concerns of living  and believing in a world created good, but one that also can get real tough real fast.

I believe:

  • God is love (1 John 4)
  • Love is real and demonstrable through how we treat each other
  • Therefore, God is real and active in our lives
  • And if God is real, the implications are eternal

It is an honor to serve the Lord by serving you and our communities. Be blessed!

Sincerely,

Pastor Jeremey

P.S. Ask me sometime about how I helped the Chiefs win the Super Bowl.  😉
