Meet our team
Our mission is to make disciples who love God and love people.

Two Campuses. One Mission

The leadership at Morehead UMC had a vision to reach new people in new ways to make disciples who love God and love people. This vision led to the launch of Morehead UMC's second campus, The 801 Community Campus. The 801 Community Campus has modern worship music and meets on route 801 in Rowan County, Kentucky. The 801 Community Campus and Downtown Campus of Morehead UMC have the same unifying mission and utilize the same sermon series each week. Countless lives have been changed for eternity through the Downtown and 801 Community Campuses of Morehead UMC.
