Join us at Abernethy UMC.
A website will never be able to truly capture the heart of a church. However, I believe that in this site you will find the snapshots that will help you understand that Abernethy people truly love and care for each other as well as their neighbors, just as Jesus asked us to do.
I love living in Asheville and I am truly blessed to be able to serve Christ and His church in this beautiful and exciting place. I’m Wes Austin, Pastor at Abernethy UMC. I was born in Blowing Rock, NC; I am the Dad of three amazing and wonderful young persons, and partner to a woman of beauty, intelligence and strength. I received a B.A. at UNC Greensboro and a Masters of Divinity at Duke Divinity School and I believe in the inherent God given equality and worth of all people.
And just as there is so much more about me and Abernethy to know than can be adequately revealed in these web pages, there is also much more to know about the God we serve together. So stop by and see us, catch us in the BEAR Closet, the Good Faith Garden, at the UJ or The Hop or out in the Pumpkin Patch. We would love to get to know more about you as well.
The pumpkins are coming! So are concerts and crafts.
