Our Pastor

Pastor Robert Stutes began his ministry at Mount Pleasant in July 2013.  Before that he served as senior pastor of Bellville (Texas) United Methodist Church for seven years.

He is a native Texan ready to become an enthusiastic Virginian!  He and his wife Betsy have two grown children - Jeremy and Whitney - both of whom live in Santa Monica, California.

Robert and Betsy have become avid walkers, which is one of the reasons they are so excited about moving to Roanoke!

Robert is a graduate of the University of Houston (B.A), Saint Paul School of Theology in Kansas City (M.Div.) and United Theological Seminary in Dayton, Ohio (D.Min.).  

Robert says, "I look forward to meeting you, and please know that a warm welcome always awaits you at Mount Pleasant!"

“I rejoice in God’s steadfast love.” (Psalm 31)
