The GSUMC SPRC Committee is pleased to announce Rev. Brian McPherson will join GSUMC as our Pastor on July 1, 2017. 
Brian is currently the Executive Pastor of FUMC Allen and is looking forward to being here at Good Shepherd. He was born in Gainesville, Texas, and grew up in Archer City and Jacksboro. He received his bachelor of arts in English from Texas A&M University and his master of divinity from Perkins School of Theology at Southern Methodist University (SMU).
He has been married to his wife, Cathy, for 23 years and they have an 18 year old son Jeffrey who graduates Allen High School this June, and a 14 year old son named Alex who starts Allen High School in the fall.
Brian is the lead guitarist in the Connections Band, a group of Methodist clergy who have raised over $300,000 for mission in the United Methodist Church.
We look forward to working with Brian and helping him settle into his position here at Good Shepherd UMC.
