First United Methodist Church of Port St. Joe welcomes the Rev. Dr. Geoffrey Lentz as its new pastor. 



Bishop Paul Leeland of the Alabama-West Florida Conference appointed Lentz as pastor on Jan. 1.  He moves here from Pensacola, his hometown, with his wife Elizabeth (Liz) of Tarpon Springs, FL and their two young children.



With an undergraduate degree in Psychology from the University of West Florida, a Masters in Divinity from Duke University, and a Doctorate of Ministry from Drew University, he is excited to teach Bible studies and get involved in the local community.  Lentz said he is thrilled to share the love of Christ in this beautiful area stating in church,



“The only thing more beautiful than sitting on the parsonage front porch looking out at the bay is standing in the pulpit looking out at such a wonderful congregation.”
