OUR TEAM

Kirk Dreiser

Pastor 

Pastor Kirk loves Jesus and does his best to love others. His goal as a pastor is to help a church make disciples of Jesus Christ who make other disciples. His wife is Michelle, and they have four children: Josiah, Christopher, Nathan and Abigail. That’s the important stuff.

Raised in New York State, he has also lived in Iowa, Georgia, Kentucky and several places in Florida. He hasn’t lived in a place he didn’t like. He enjoys meeting people everyplace he lives. He wants each one of them to know Jesus. He loves Rockledge because he enjoys the people here. And space—he loves space.

 

 

Kyra Langston

Director of Family Ministries & Financial Administration

Kyra wears many hats at RUMC but Family Ministries and Community Projects are her favorite. “There is nothing better than seeing the eyes light up of a child or member in the community when they feel God’s love through our teachings, outreach or events. God can use each and every one of us in small and big ways and it is amazing to watch.” Kyra’s life was transformed by God as an adult and it has created a fire in her to share God’s goodness and love. She hopes everyone can know their worth and value. She has a background in recovery ministry as well and hopes to continue serving God at RUMC for years to come.

Bob has been  a member of the Rockledge United Methodist Church since 1986, participating in worship, church musicals, and cantatas. After receiving his music degree from Florida State University, Bob was called to serve as the church Choir Director in 1995. In 2019, Bob became active in the church Praise and Worship Team on percussion, and as a  vocalist. He would like to thank God for the many blessings in his life, most importantly, his wife Carolyn, and two sons Tommy and Henry. Bob remains a humble servant, and is excited to see what plans God has for him, his family, and Rockledge United Methodist Church.
