Our Senior Pastor

Rev. Byron Vance

I am a native Alabamian but consider myself half-Arkansan, since I’ve shared half my life with my awesome wife and Razorback, Kelly. We are blessed with two sons, Daniel and Landon, who are students at UAH and UA, respectively. I was raised in another piece of the Christian quilt, but the United Methodist Church welcomed me in late 1997 and I’m so glad to call this my spiritual home.
