First United Methodist Church

Hey! I’m Ron Beaton, the pastor of First United Methodist Church in Dexter, MO.   I am passionate about many things: music, theatre, food, Duke basketball, and Cardinals baseball.  However, I am most passionate about loving God and loving my neighbor.  If you are interested in those two things, I think you would love worshiping with some of the kind people at First UMC.

A little about myself:  I was raised in Kennett and went to school at Murray State (Go Racers!).  It was there I met my tremendous wife, Kasey.  Together we went to the Divinity School at Duke University (Go Blue Devils!).  I was ordained in 2014 and appointed to First UMC in the summer of 2016.  My wife is a deacon in the United Methodist Church and has served as a pastor, an associate pastor, and a hospice chaplain.  We have two great kids: Isaac and Hannah. 

I hope that you will consider being a part of our community.  If you have any questions, I would love to meet you.

                                                  Grace and Peace,

                                                      Pastor Ron
