Senior Pastor Sean Kilpatrick
Sean Michael Kilpatrick is a seminary student at Candler School of Theology in Atlanta, Georgia.
He became the pastor of Chapel Hill United Methodist Church June 23, 2013.
Sean is 27, and a graduate of The University of Alabama where he earned his Bachelor’s degree
in political science with a minor in business administration.
In Sean’s free time he loves to be outdoors, hiking and biking. We welcome Pastor Sean to Chapel Hill UMC.
The church is experiencing phenomenal growth and a spirit of love that motivates all to reach out to others in the community and in the world.
Chapel Hill's slogan from the past has been revived: "God is Real at Chapel Hill."
And Now ... A Word From Sean...
I would like for each person in the church, every man, woman and child, to know that they are a gift from God and made in His image.
More yet, they have the potential to carry the message of the Gospel throughout the Rome community, the state of Georgia,
the United States, and the rest of the world.
Each person has a God given gift in ministry. I hope to be a part of that discovery,
the utilization of such gifts and journey that we all will take together as we tell the world of God's love manifested in His Son,
our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Music Directors Cindy And Steve Story
In the fall of 1991 at the invitation of the first pastor of what was to later become Chapel Hill UMC, Steve and Cindy were asked to become the first music leaders of this new work. Thrilled at this open door, they accepted and became staff members as well as charter members of Rome’s newest church.
Steve has served in local church ministry in recreation, youth, education, and music for the past 35 years. Cindy has 40 years of experience as church pianist and music coordinator.
Steve retired from education while Cindy continues to teach private piano lessons in her home studio, doing so since 1974. While both are graduates of Berry College, Cindy received her Master's degree from Georgia State University. Steve later received a Master's degree from West Georgia College and a Specialist’s degree from Lincoln Memorial University.
Married 33 years, Steve and Cindy believe faith in the Lord, music and corporate worship have always held a unifying place in their relationship. The couple is blessed with 2 children, Drew and Chelsea, who are also charter members of Chapel Hill UMC.
