Hillsboro First United Methodist Church

PASTOR DANNY FREEMAN

 

There is one thing for sure about life. It is ever changing and full of surprises. I could never have imagined that God would call me, a sinner saved only by His grace, into the ministry. That leaves me with only one conclusion: never underestimate the power of the Holy Spirit of God. I feel blessed to become the pastor at Hillsboro FUMC. I grew up in the Fountain Grove community of Coffee County. I attended Coffee Co. schools and graduated from Manchester CHS in 1976. I graduated from MTSU in 1980 with a degree in Agriculture Business. After that, I returned to our family farm and joined my brother, Dennis, in the dairy business. Hillsboro FUMC has already profoundly impacted my life. In 1996, God blessed me with my wife, Sherry (Brothers). Sherry grew up in Hillsboro; her spirit in the Lord was developed at this very church. God blessed us with a son, Eli; he is currently attending the University of TN School of Law in Knoxville. I often say that God has a sense of humor; why else would he call me into the ministry - ill-equipped as I was to accomplish His work? I have realized that God truly doesnít call the equipped; he does equip the called. My familyís journey in ministry began in 2006 when I became the pastor at Ivy Bluff UMC, in Cannon Co. After 7 years, I was appointed to Cedar Grove UMC, in Bedford Co., where I have served as pastor for nine years. While pastoring at Ivy Bluff UMC, I obtained my Master of Divinity Degree from the University of the South School of Theology at Sewanee. I was commissioned by the UMC in 2011 and ordained, as Full Elder, in 2014. I am grateful to the Hillsboro FUMC congregation for supporting this part of my journey through their Clergy Scholarship Program. My hobbies include officiating high school sports - 44 years of basketball; I added volleyball last year. I enjoy playing golf, esp. with Eli; my goal is to one day hit a hole-in-one! My family is looking forward to what God has in store for us and the people of Hillsboro FUMC. We will glorify the Lord together. God has a plan for each of us - letís get busy accomplishing His plan! See you Sunday!
