Welcome to Marion Aldersgate Church
Join us for Christmas Eve!
Meet Our New Pastors
Marion Aldersgate Family,
It is with great excitement that we announce that Reverend Dr. Sarah (Mayfield) Wanck has accepted the call as our Lead Pastor. Pastor Sarah’s doctoral study was focused on Church Renewal and Evangelism. She has a passion to share Jesus with Marion Aldersgate Church, our community, and the world. Pastor Sarah serves on staff with World Methodist Evangelism. She will bring vision to our church and lead us to grow the Kingdom of God.
Rev. Gabe Wanck has accepted a call as Associate Pastor. Pastor Gabe will focus on discipleship and administration. Pastor Gabe has served as both a Lead Pastor and Associate Pastor. His most recent appointments have had a focus on discipleship, administration, and care ministries. Pastor Gabe will lead our committees and teams to develop a strong discipleship plan for all ages, and make sure administrative needs are met.
Pastors Sarah and Gabe Wanck have been married for 20 years and are parents to Hudson Wanck who will be entering seventh grade at Marion Junior High School. Hudson plays baseball, runs cross country, and loves video games. Their family will be a great addition to our family here at Marion Aldersgate Church.
Please be praying for Pastor Sarah, Pastor Gabe, and Hudson as they prepare to move over the Christmas break. Also, pray for the congregations of Marion Aldersgate Church and Christ Church Quad Cities during this time of transition. Last, but certainly not least, pray for Hudson as he moves into a new school mid-year.
Thank you for your consistent prayers through this season of discernment. We, the SPRC, are grateful to the congregation, Pastor Bob Phillips, and Presiding Elder Andy Adams as all have supported us in this pastoral search. We look forward to many years of ministry with Pastors Sarah and Gabe Wanck.
