PASTORS

     Pleasant Grove Methodist Episcopal Church belonged to four different circuit/charges, with Conference-Appointed Pastors as our church developed through the years.

     According to conference journals, Sidney R. Trawick was the founder and the first Pastor of Pleasant Grove Methodist Episcopal Church South in 1870.

     Records prior to 1870 were not included in this record because the circuit that Pleasant Grove United Methodist Church was on could not be determined.

In 1961 Pleasant Grove Methodist Church became a Station Church led by the Reverend Jack Hunter.


The merger in 1968 that formed the United Methodist Church brought together the Methodist Church and the Evangelical United Brethren Church.
