Pastor John Britt and Pastor John Price

SelfieHello!  My name is John Britt and I am the pastor at Winner United Methodist Church!  I started my service here in July 2016 and love the church and the community.  Winner UMC is an amazing blend of young families, Youth, energetic adults, and wise and loving shepherds.  The church has lots of energy and offers many classes, small groups, activities, and outreach opportunities.

I am a graduate of the University of Connecticut and still bleed Husky Blue on occasion.  After teaching mostly 7th and 8th grade Math and Social Studies for 22 years, I left teaching and entered full-time vocational ministry in 2012.  I completed the Course of Study program Garrett Evangelical Theological Seminary in Chicago in July 2018.  I spent four years as the Associate Pastor at First UMC in Rapid City, SD, and received excellent mentoring and growth opportunities during my time there.  Thanks for reading this.  It is my prayer that the Lord will bless you this day!!
