Rev. Scott M. Low – Pastor
Pastor Scott Low joined Tallmadge UMC in July 2016. He enjoys sharing God’s message in a variety of worship styles. From traditional favorite hymns and liturgy, to modern music genres and spontaneous prayer, he preaches to refuel your soul. Scott strives to work with the people of Tallmadge UMC to trust God with our whole lives more each day. He wants to help others experience the wholeness that God offers in spite of living in a broken world. “I truly believe that the church must be more than a place where we talk about being and doing good. The church must be, in the words of Bishop John Hopkins, ‘a mission out-post’ from where we go into our world with the transforming hope, healing, feeding, clothing, and freeing power of Jesus Christ!”
Pastor Low has years of experience in youth ministry. He firmly believes that children and youth are vital to the life of the church. He also believes in strong community involvement, where he builds bridges into the life of faith.
Scott has many passions, such as bicycling, downhill/cross-country snow skiing, watching, and participating in most sports. He is also an avid Ohio State Buckeyes fan, and is the Cleveland Gladiators arena football team chaplain in the spring and summer months. After a 7-week mission trip to Liberia, West Africa in 2013, Pastor Low continues to be an advocate of appropriate ways to help his Liberian friends in need. Born and raised in central Ohio, Scott is a graduate of The Columbus Academy High School. He attended the Ohio Northern University, where he was a 4-year starting running back on the football team and earned a business degree. After a short career in business, he answered his call to ministry. Scott attended The Methodist Theological School in Ohio. Scott’s wife, Kay, is a special education teacher. Together they have three young adult children. Reach out to Pastor Scott Low on Facebook, or leave a message here
Mindy Royer – Director of Children’s & Family Ministries
I am married with two kids. My husband, Clay and I have an 8 year old son and a 17 month old daughter. Their names are Carter and MaKenzie. We are residents of Tallmadge and truly enjoy the community. My husband and I were married in the church that is located on the Tallmadge Circle. I have grown up in the United Methodist church and attended the First United Methodist Church in Ravenna from age 9 until I answered God’s call to serve at the Tallmadge United Methodist Church. My passions include reading, traveling and being a mom.
I worked at Tots Learning Center, an outreach ministry of the Ravenna United Methodist Church, for 7 years. I was also the assistant director of children’s ministry for 3 of those years and have continued to be heavily involved in their children’s ministry. I have a passion for working with children as well as helping them and their families build a solid relationship with Christ. I believe that, at a young age, it is so important to guide them to have a foundation that is Christ focused as well as knowing the love of Jesus. I am excited to be working with the children and families here and allow God to guide us together in this journey!
