Bob Lewis

Trustee- Chairperson

 
As Trustees, our task is to be good stewards of what God has blessed us with here at Wildare Methodist Church. It is our task to look after the Church’s properties. Some of our recent projects are: the connector and  the parking lot. The Connector has become a wonderful  common space for our congregation. The Church has also completed  a parking lot resurface that will be a great improvement as we approach winter.
