Dr. Roy Trueblood is retiring from Delta Methodist Church - 6/13/12

...
After four years as the pastor of the Delta United Methodist Church, Dr. Roy Trueblood is retiring, again, and heading off for a life of leisure, again.
This will be the third time he has retired, and though he said, rather emphatically, that he is done working, his wife, Jackie, laughed. "You wanna see God laugh, tell him your plans," she said.
He began his pastorship at the Delta church almost exactly four years ago to his retirement date, on July 1, 2008. The first year the couple was here, Jackie finished her master's degree and began as a literacy coach at Garnet Mesa Elementary School. She retired this year as well.
Dr. Trueblood went into ministry at the age of 19. His first pastorship was at a small Methodist church in Mechanisburg, Ill., in September 1954. He has served in several churches throughout his career in Illinois, Georgia and Colorado.
Fifteen years after his first church, he went back to school and earned his doctorate in theology from Northwestern University in Evanstan, Ill.
After he earned his degree, he taught at the university level for four years. He then switched tracks and joined a management-consulting group with three other partners. He worked at Atlanta Consulting Group for a few years and then retired, the first time, when he was 60.
After retirement, he consulted with Methodist churches all over the U.S. and developed a program for the Methodist Church called Partners in Ministry, which was designed to help pastors and laity work together as a team. He and Jackie received seed money from the Southeast Jurisdiction of Methodist Lay Leaders to write a book on the program, "Partners in Ministry: Clergy and Laity. For several years, they trained leaders in the church using the program.
Dr. Trueblood went back into ministry a while after that. "It was kind of an accident," he said. The district superintendent of the Griffin, Ga., Methodist Church asked him to fill a six-month vacancy from a pastor who left the post. "It rekindled my love for ministry, and I asked God to allow me to have one more full time church before I finally retired," he said.
That one last church brought he and Jackie to Delta, "where we've had some of the happiest days of our lives. I wish we came here 20 years ago," he said.
...
Though is looking forward to retirement, again, Roy said he is not anxious to leave his church family. "It's a bittersweet experience," he said. "This congregation has been our family for four years.
...
Dr. Trueblood will preach his last sermon the following day, June 24, at 10 a.m. His sermon is titled, "Paul's Farewell... And Ours."
After he preaches, he and his wife will leave Delta and drive to Ocala, Fla., where they have purchased a home. He will have hip surgery on July 30. "After that," he said with a smile, "we hope to frequent the pool and the golf course.
