Greetings and blessings! My name is Abraham Ruffcorn, or Abe. I started in June of 2022 as the Assistant Pastor for Youth and Young Adults and presently serve as Minister for Family Life at FUMC-Carbondale.
My wife and I have been married since January 2019 and we are excited that God has brought us here to Carbondale. We enjoy hiking and being outdoors, drinking coffee, and playing board games. I am an avid sports fan, especially ice hockey, baseball, and football. Also, I love music, including leading worship and playing the guitar and ukulele. I am currently a student at Asbury Theological Seminary, where I am getting my Master of Arts in Christian Ministries and a Certificate in Christian Education. Before seminary, I went to Emporia State University, where I received a Bachelor of Music Education.
Before coming to FUMC-Carbondale, I have served in a variety of ways. In college, I spent my summers as a youth ministry intern and a pastoral intern at different churches, as well as a camp counselor for two summers. My wife and I worked as teachers for a children's ministry in Kentucky, and I was the slides guy for Asbury's chapel services. We look forward to being in ministry at FUMC-Carbondale, helping to make disciples of the youth and young adults that come to us.
My new email address at the church is email@example.com, and you can also reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Blessings to each of you!
