Rev. Dr. Steve Wende is known as one of the greatest preachers in Methodism.
He was the senior pastor of University Methodist in San Antonio, where he grew the church from less than 200 members to over 6,000. For the last 15 years, he has been the senior pastor of First Methodist Houston - one of the most significant congregations in Texas. Recently retired, Dr. Wende is now coaching pastors and churches and is helping our church during this time of transition. We are blessed by his experience and wisdom. Dr. Wende is a long-time mentor of mine and a hero of the faith that I have tried to emulate in my Christian walk. I want to close by expressing my personal appreciation to Steve and Susan Ramsdell. Steve has been a great friend and mentor through this transition. His grace through this process evidences his deep and intimate relationship with the Lord. I am humbled and honored to succeed him in leadership at First Methodist. Thank you, Steve for showing me how a disciple loves the church. Well done, good and faithful servant.
