To search for Methodist pastors, visit the United Methodist denomination website at UMC.org or the Free Methodist denomination website at FMCUSA.org. As of 2015, both of these websites offer tools for finding Methodist churches in a specific area. To view a list of pastors at a local church, visit the church's website.
To find pastors on UMC.org, click Find-A-Church at the top of the page. Enter a specific city and state or ZIP code, and a list of nearby United Methodist churches appears. Click on the church name and then on the website link. A page that lists all pastors and staff is usually available on the main page, or under tabs such as "Visitors," "Contact Us" or "Connect."
To find Methodist pastors on FMCUSA.org, enter the city and state or ZIP code in the Find a Church search bar at the top left corner of the page. This search generates a list of local Free Methodist churches.
Another option for finding Methodist pastors is to call the Free Methodist Church directly at 800-342-5531 to inquire about pastors. The United Methodist Church website also provides a tool that allows people to send in questions. This page is located on the Ask a Question tab at the top right corner of the home page.
