Rev. Loren A. Boyce
The Rev. Loren A. Boyce is Lead Pastor at Rogersville First UMC. Rev. Boyce came to FUMC on July 1, 2019. Prior to FUMC, Loren has served Trinity UMC in Athens, Tennessee and a myriad of different churches and ministries in the Rocky Mountain west.
Prior to his 20 years of ministry in Colorado, Loren grew up in Celina, Tennessee. Loren earned a Bachelor of Science in Animal Science from the University of Tennessee (Go Vols!) and a Masters of Divinity from the Candler School of Theology at Emory University. The Rev. Boyce classifies himself as a “Spiritual Imagineer.”
Loren’s theological and worship experiences range from Hippolytus to Willow Creek and opera to bluegrass. He is a classically trained tenor and has spent the past few seasons trying to meld music across the borders of worship in the attempt to find more than just a “third way”.
Loren spends most of his days trying to be a good husband and father — chasing around his children! He also looks for ways to meet people where they are (on the ball field, on their boards, on the trail, and on the couch). In the fall he will be bathed in Orange and White, although occasionally in camouflage.
Loren is married to the Rev. Jessica Boyce. Loren and Jessica are blessed to have two sons — Alexander age 4 and Zachary age 2.
