Welcome Reverend Clint, Amy, and Emma!
An easy smile on an intelligent face. That’s Clint McBroom. In fact, that’s what you see with all three McBrooms. Especially Emma, who is very excited, but just a little shy, to be moving to Tallassee.
The McBrooms are coming to us from Highland Park UMC in Dothan, Alabama. They will be moving into the parsonage in late June, and their first Sunday with us will be July 8, when Brother Clint will serve Holy Communion.
Clint was raised in Shalimar, Florida. He graduated from the University of South Alabama with a BS in Chemical Engineering.
Amy is a Kentucky girl. While he was in seminary, Clint and Amy met at a young adult church gathering. After meeting casually a few times at church functions, they began dating, and the rest is history. They have a lovely daughter Emma, who will be going into the 5th grade next fall.
Brother Clint shares his call to ministry like this: As I neared my senior year at the University of South Alabama, I began to feel a call to Christian service, but it was not, at least to me, a clear call to minis-try. I had a mentor with whom I explored my call. It was similar to Moses’ call; I questioned my ability, but in the end, I understood and surrendered. Immediately after graduation, I found myself studying Greek at Asbury Theological Seminary in Wilmore, Kentucky.
Clint loves to read. He says he can sit and read for hours. “I have a lot of church-related reading – I’m always reading a book on leadership, congregational growth, or the like, but I read a lot of other books for pleasure too. The main criteria are simply books I consider both good and compelling.”
He hopes to explore with the church leadership and congregation what we as a church see as our greatest challenges, and then help us reach those goals.
Amy teaches English as a second language to Chinese students via the internet. Did I say intelligent face?
Clint and Amy have served churches in Dothan (FUMC), Florala, and Pensacola (Cokesbury), among others.
We welcome them into our church and fellowship!











Your Servant in Christ,



We will begin looking at long-range plans for FUMC Tallassee as our first project for the coming year. I am also looking at the shepherding committee—to get it back into action. I am getting really excited about what the education committee is going to do this coming year. I am also thankful for our music program, youth and children’s programs.

I believe it is going to be a great year. We have an amazing staff at FUMC Tallassee who do great minis-try and we also have some of the best volunteers from the congregation. Thanks for all that all of you do for the Church.

We still need volunteers to help this coming year. Some of you may still be wondering how you can help? Or what your gift may be? I have two websites I would like for you to look at that can help you answer those questions. They are:

Please come and talk to me about your results. I would love to help you use your gifts for the Kingdom. This is going to be a great year!
