Meet Our Interim Preacher: Brian Lawson

For those who have been longtime members of the First United Methodist Church of Mount Dora, Brian Lawson needs no introduction. He served as our Director of Youth and Young Adult Ministries from 2012 to 2019.

He is currently the Director of Student Development at the Youth Ministry Institute in Orlando, Florida. And he has agreed to be our interim preacher for the next few months.

Brian holds a Master of Ministry with a focus in organizational culture, team-based leadership, change, conflict, and peacemaking from Warner University, and has also studied at Asbury Theological Seminary.  He has spoken at numerous camps and retreats. Brian married Ashley in 2007, and they have two daughters.

This Sunday (September 13, 2020), he is beginning an ongoing Sermon Series titled “Into the Unknown.” This has been the year of constant unknowns. Yet, the unknown offers us experiences that stretch out faith, challenge who we are, and take us to places we could never fathom.

We are delighted to welcome back a trusted, familiar presence in these unfamiliar times. Join Brian and the rest of the worship team on Sunday mornings, in person and online!
