Pastor

Cameron Levi

"My calling is to serve God through pastoral ministry. This means that I am called to proclaim God's word in the forms of preaching and teaching. I am called to administer the sacraments of baptism and holy communion to provide the church and community opportunities to uniquely encounter God's grace. I am called to service in the church and the community. This looks like caring for the sick, visiting those who are limited in their ability to leave their home, participate in missions in both the church and community, standing up for those who are left out or in need, and to lead others in doing this kind of work. Finally, I am called to organize the life of the church through working with our church's wonderful staff, committees, teams, and all who participate in St. Paul UMC."

Pastor Cameron lives with his wife Sabrina.  They have two cats and two dogs that they love very much.

A graduate from the University of South Carolina Aiken with a bachelor's degree in Communication and the Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary with a master's degree in Divinity. He has worked a multitude of part-time jobs including maintenance at a golf course, bagging groceries, and selling men's clothes.His pastoral ministry began when he was 20 years-old, so being a pastor has made up the majority of his work.

Pastor Cameron enjoys working out, reading books, cooking, taking day trips with my wife, and watching baseball. Go Braves!
