Shirley McLeod has served as PVUMC’s Food Service Director since 1996 and with the help of many volunteers, provides meals with love for many church events. She has organized and served meals for as many as 1000 attendees for a single event, and has provided meals for the district pastors. She has provided leadership and support for events hosted at PVUMC including the Methodist Home for Children Christmas party, family camps, youth and children events, including confirmation retreats and graduation dinners. Camping is Shirley’s passion! She was a counselor in 1988 when camp started. After her last child “aged out” she became the camp cook. She loves the youth and kids and has been privileged to watch so many of them grow up coming through the food lines at camp and at church. Her motto is “Feed them and they will come!”

Music Director for Children & Youth
Karl is our resident “music dude”. He went to school at West Virginia University and received a Masters Degree from the Cleveland Institute of Music. When parole finally came through after six years, he spent time back home with his wife’s family in Northern Virginia where he lived as an unemployed musician (is there any other kind?) for many years. However, he did not spend his time unwisely. He and his wife Katy Jean had three daughters while holding down 5 jobs between them. Karl came to PVUMC in 2003 in an attempt to become part of the slower pace of life in the south (boy, was he in for a surprise!) Karl continues to remain active by directing the adult ensembles, overseeing the music department and the technology for the church.

Stewardship means being a good manager of the talents and resources God has given us. As the Church Business Administrator my goal is to ensure that PVUMC’s resources are used efficiently and effectively to support the church’s mission and vision. This means managing the finances, facilities, and assets of the church, as well as supporting the ministry staff and volunteers to achieve their vision: “Connecting hearts to Christ and to one another through the 4-E’s: Excellence in worship, Engaging spiritual formation, Expressive faith-sharing, and Extra-mile caring.” Jesus reminds us in Matthew 6:21 “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
Church Business Administrator
Archie McLeod started working at the church in 2002 after taking early retirement from DuPont. He likes to tell everyone that he retired and 3 months later, Shirley (his wife, see above) got him a job at the church. Archie does all sorts of behind the scenes things. Most of the year he stays busy setting up tables and chairs, then taking them down again. He does this for the many suppers, meetings and other events at PVUMC. Archie is always on the lookout for burnt out light bulbs, trash, broken equipment, and whatever anyone else asks him to do. In his spare time Archie loves to “wet a hook”, (not always catching fish) and working in the yard. He also enjoys working on the family farmland in Robeson county. His biggest challenge is keeping Shirley straight in the kitchen.
