We build capacity by teaching and coaching our members to serve.

Greetings! My name is Joel Fitzgerald, and I have been the pastor here at Wyoming Park since July 2012. I am a graduate of Vanderbilt Divinity school in Nashville, TN but was born and raised in Michigan. When I am not being a pastor, I enjoy reading, working out, traveling with my wife Erin, and drinking coffee. My passion is to connect people to God and each other and find ways to make the world a better place. Email me at pierfitz@gmail.com if you have questions about how Wyoming Park can walk with you on the journey of faith.






Dave Borda is our KIDS HOPE USA director, and took the lead with our program in 2016.  He is actively involved in recruiting and training mentors to work one-on-one with a student from Parkview Elementary School. Dave and his wife, Sue, have been active members of WPUMC for over 25 years and have four grandchildren.

A prayer partner is matched with each mentor/student pair to surround and support the team with prayer during the mentoring hour.  We believe meeting for one hour, with one child, once a week can make a difference in the life of a child by showing them they are important enough to spend time with each week.  Our mentors and prayer partners are "Jesus with skin on" to the life of a child.


Bertram Sluys has been praise team leader at Wyoming Park since September 2011, planning music into the worship services and leading the praise team.  Bertram spent 16 years traveling with Covenant Players, a Christian repertory theatre ministry, performing drama and music across North America and Europe and now has his own music and dramaministry, Slice of Life.  His visions include providing an atmosphere where all musicians in the church have a safeplace to serve, learn and grow, and getting out of the way to let God lead the congregation into his presence week by week.
