Dear Maumee United Methodist Church,

Your Staff Parish Relations Committee is excited to provide you with some more information regarding our new pastor, Russ Tichenor.  Russ provided this so that we can learn about him, his wife, Michelle and his family.  We hope that you find it both interesting and helpful as we continue the Introduction process.
Pastor Russ Tichenor has served as the pastor of Lithopolis United Methodist Church since July of 2011.  Prior to this appointment, he served as the pastor of Fletcher United Methodist Church in Fletcher, Ohio.  He attended Asbury Seminary in Wilmore, Kentucky.  Russ graduated from the University of Texas at Arlington and spent twenty-three years with CVS Drug Stores where he worked as a district manager.  He worked in Texas, Pennsylvania and Cincinnati, Ohio prior to entering into pastoral ministry.  Russ and his wife, Michelle, have three children, two of whom who are married, and two grandchildren.  Russ said, “Michelle and I are excited to meet the people of Maumee United Methodist Church and are looking forward to new friendships and serving together in the ministry of Jesus Christ.”
