Hi! Thank you for taking the time to read this. I am Kevin Slough, pastor at Elmgrove Methodist Church. I was appointed to Elmgrove in July of 2011. Prior to Elmgrove, I served East Rochester UMC for 8 Years as well as Seneca UMC.

I have been a United Methodist pastor since 2005. I have a four year degree from RIT in Business Management and graduated in 2015 with a Masters of Divinity degree from Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School here in Rochester. I have three wonderful young teenagers who keep me on my toes!

My personal mission is “To introduce people to Jesus Christ so that their lives may be transformed, empowered and equipped to share the same love and hope they have encountered.”

I have found Elmgrove UMC to be a growing congregation made up of people from all walks of life. The people of Elmgrove are extremely loving, giving and simply fun to be around. If you are seeking a new church home that is focused on making disciples of Jesus Christ and being involved in mission and outreach, this is the church for you. If you are seeking to find God in your life or in need of hearing more about God to discover your beliefs, this is the church for you. If you want to feel love and acceptance, this is the church for you. If you want to hear the Word of God preached in an uplifting manner that speaks to our current times, this is the church for you.

As the pastor of Elmgrove UMC, I am here for you; to help you discover yourself as an undeniable asset to God and this community. Come and check us out. Come and get involved!
