Pastor Bruce Davis

Pastor Bruce Davis moved from Springfield, MO in 2005 to take leadership as the Senior Pastor at St. Andrew’s UMC.  Bruce and his wife Nancy came to St. Andrew’s from Missouri as a co-pastor team back in 2005. In 2013, Nancy took on a new assignment as Pastor of Elkhorn Hills United Methodist Church and has since retired.   Pastor Bruce starts every day bright and early. You can find him most every morning at Panera by 6am, where he drinks coffee and writes his upcoming sermons. He is known as someone who loves history and enjoys reading and learning.  Grandparenting is another one of his favorite hobbies.  With 4 grandkids spread across many time zones, he loves skyping and visiting the grandkids.  Bruce comes from a long line of Methodist preachers, with his father and grandfather both serving churches before him.
