Pastor Kerry Wood joined the ministry of Mt. Moriah United Methodist Church in January 2018. He previously pastored a church on Cincinnati’s west side. He and his wife, Deborah, love this area and are proud to make it their home, even though their roots are back in Texas, where they grew up, met and married one another.

Pastor Kerry’s passion is making connections between God’s story found in Scripture with our stories today. He helps bring the Bible to life and how it makes a difference in us now. And by God’s grace, that knowledge becomes power to make a difference in our communities and around the world!

Star Trek, the Dallas Cowboys, Appalachian mountains, and family are Pastor Kerry’s most enjoyed pastimes. He also appreciates his wife’s amazing cooking skills! They have three grown children, two sons-in-law and two granddaughters. They feel incredibly blessed, and even more so now that they are part of the Mt. Moriah family!
