Iain Glithero



Bio: I am a graduate of Claremont School of Theology. (2000.) and have served several churches in the greater Phoenix area.
I retired in 2014 and have since been a member of St Matthew UMC in Mesa.
It is with great pleasure that I return to parish ministry, albeit part time. I realize that I cannot fulfil all the ministries of a full- time pastor, but I am pleased that many of you have stepped up to fill the voids.
My main areas of ministry will be; Worship, Study classes and Visitation.
I am so pleased to be here as your pastor. It has been several years since I was in Parish ministry, but I trust that I have been placed among by our Bishop as guide, friend, and leader, all with God’s guidance.
