Paul Babcock

Lead Pastor
 

Rev. Paul Babcock is pleased to serve as pastor of Lebo-Olivet United Methodist Church.

He has served as a United Methodist minister for more than 40 years in rural and suburban churches across Kansas.

 

Babcock grew up in Kansas City, Kan., where he attended a Methodist Church as a child. He earned a bachelor's degree in Speech Communication at Baker University, and received a Master of Divinity at Saint Paul School of Theology in Kansas City, Mo.

 

He has served as pastor at several local churches in Kansas including Baldwin First United Methodist, Fort Scott First United Methodist Church, Holton First United Methodist Church, Heritage United Methodist Church in Overland Park, Riley and Keats United Methodist Churches in Riley County, and Buffalo and High Prairie United Methodist Churches in Wilson County. As a minister he also has served on the Board of Ordained Ministry for the Kansas East Conference of the United Methodist Church -- a group that mentors and evaluates new Methodist ministers for candidacy.  He has also served on two District committees on Ordained Ministry.

 

As a pastor he has led church congregations through new building campaigns, the development and implementation of strategic plans, and local mission work and projects. His true calling is in the area of pastoral care and how church members can work in community -- through prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness to support one another through all life brings.

 

Babcock and his wife Debbie have been married for more than 35 years and have a daughter and son. Paul and Debbie enjoy supporting the communities they serve- you will probably see them at local athletic, academic, fine arts events and community celebrations.
