Senior Pastor


Rev. Stephen Bibb comes to our congregation as an intentional interim minister. Bishop Trimble and the Cabinet have endeavored to find the best minister to provide meaningful and effective pastoral leadership for this congregation, as well as to create an environment for congregational health and missional growth. Rev. Bibb and his wife, Linda, are both clergy members of the Iowa Conference, currently living in Colorado. Steve has served more than a dozen churches as an interim pastor. He will bring a wealth of experience, knowledge, and compassion to First Church. I invite you to join in welcoming Steve and Linda when they join the First Church family July 1st.

Rev Bibb and Linda met with the FUMC “Staff Parish Relations Committee” and with District Superintendent Rev Kate Walker on April 19
th to discuss details of the appointment. He will serve FUMC on one year appointments for no more than three years total. The SPRC is pleased that a national search has blessed FUMC with such a distinguished appointment. .
