Meet the Staff
Rev. Kevin Asbury
I was born and raised in Gadsden, AL. I have also been lucky enough to have been raised in the Church my whole life. I literally do not remember a time in my life where the Church wasn’t present and active in my upbringing. I am forever thankful for that fact.
Prior to being appointed to Henryville UMC I had been a youth minister for just over 10 years. Five of those years I was also appointed as Associate Pastor at Christ Central UMC in Rainbow City. I also served four years as Senior Pastor at Turkeytown UMC.
Ministry is my passion. More specifically I am passionate about helping others figure out and teaching about what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ day in and day out. This in turn helps move all of us towards reaching out to others just as Jesus did in hopes of all people coming to have a relationship with Him. I am also driven by the words from the Lord’s Prayer, “…on earth as it is in heaven…”. I believe this is pointing towards and speaking of the Kingdom of God. In all that I do how can I help bring the Kingdom of God here in a real way? More on all of that down the road
Wesley is our Music Director. Whether you prefer gospel, choruses, hymns, or sung liturgy, Wesley is always working to incorporate every way of helping us worship God in song. Children, youth, and adults interested in music can each find a way to participate in the music ministry at Henryville UMC.
Tammy is an amazing children's director! She loves the children of this community and they love her. Every week is filled with Bible lessons that come to life for children of every age. Tammy also plans mission trips, seasonal events, and Vacation Bible School.
Music has been a part of my life and faith from an early age. I sang my first solo in church at the age of five and began taking private, classical piano at age seven. After eight years of piano, at sixteen, I began playing piano in church and have been playing ever since. During that time I took two years of voice and piano at Snead State College. I formed my first band at thirteen and began playing professionally in 1973. Since that time I have done a lot of things to make a living but playing and singing in church is my calling. I have lived that calling by playing in Baptist, Methodist, Presbyterian, and Unity churches. I currently play for worship at Barfield Nursing Home and Henryville United Methodist Church. This allows me to use the talent God gave me. Everybody has a talent from God...I hope you will use yours as well!
If you are looking for me, you will likely find me at one church or another... I am blessed to have not only a worship church, but also a work church. I have been a part of Henryville United Methodist Church as the Church Administrator since 1993. After over 20 years of building relationships with the children and adults of HUMC, I consider this my church and my church family! My own family includes my husband Leamon, of 40 years, our lovely daughter, wonderful son-in-law, and three delightful grandchildren. I am very blessed to have my family, my worship church family, and my work church family! I hope you will come visit us in person and get to know the family.
