Hello, I am Rev. Jeff Prothro and I am a lifelong Kansan who has served as pastor in United Methodist Churches since 2008. I was appointed to De Soto UMC in 2014 and have been blessed to serve in this community. I am married to Leighann and we have two fantastic children. I am a graduate of Southwestern College in Winfield (Go Builders!) and earned my Masters of Divinity from Wesley Theological Seminary in D.C. I enjoy reading, movies, music, trivia, running, Royals baseball and KU Basketball. I am dedicated to sharing in Christ’s love to all people in words and action.
COORDINATOR OF MINISTRIES | email@example.com
Hello Friends – I am the Children, Youth, & Family Ministry Coordinator here at De Soto UMC. I have served here since 2013. I know, as I, that you will be inspired by the amazing support this faith community offers students as they grow in their faith from birth through adolescence. It is my deepest desire that everyone know the unfailing love of Jesus and to share that love with others. We learn and experience this love through regular gatherings, special events and outreach activities. I hope you’ll join us soon. I am a wife and mom of two. I love sharing a good meal and conversation with my family around the table. In addition to my 30+ hours of post-graduate course work from Saint Paul School of Theology, I have completed Youth Ministry Institute Midwest’s Youth Minister Training program, and I have a Bachelor of Science in Microbiology from the University of Arkansas. GO HOGS!!!
CHURCH SECRETARY/TREASURER | firstname.lastname@example.org
I grew up in the Kansas City area and always called it home, although I also had lived in Phoenix AZ, Toledo OH, and Durham NC before graduating from SM East in 1966. I lived in the Las Vegas NV/Kingman AZ area for thirty years and worshiped at two UMC churches after the death of my husband in 1997. I came to believe in Jesus the Christ in the middle of my life and it has made all the difference. In 2009, I left Las Vegas and moved to Bethany OK where a daughter and granddaughter lived, and I worked at a UMC church for two years. My mother and I moved here when I started work at DUMC in July 2011 and continue live together in De Soto.
