  • Pastor: Hyesook Kim


    I was raised in a Methodist family in South Korea. I graduated from Methodist Theological University in Korea and completed my Master of Divinity at United Theological Seminary in 2013 in Dayton, Ohio. I was ordained as an elder pastor in the Indiana Conference of UMC in 2016. Fairmount UMC is my second appointment after completing 6 years of ministry at Brushwood UMC in Rensselaer. 

    I am grateful that God has led me to serve Fairmount UMC and the community, and am excited to see how God blesses the community through this church. Fairmount UMC is the place where you will meet God and experience His love. You are always welcome here! Hope to see you soon.

  • Secretary: Jenny Covington

          I am a retired first responder Chaplin and my husband Jack is a retired minister.  I love my job here at Fairmount UMC and have been the secretary since 2013.  

         We reside in Gas City and are blessed to be attending Fairmount UMC and taking part in the many ministries and discipleship opportunities provided here.  

         I am a Texas girl or at least I was until my husband Jack and I moved to this area in 2009.  Our son Chris and his family, wife Amy, grandchildren Jeni, Grace, and Carter are the reason we live in Indiana.  We also have a daughter April and her family, husband Warren, grandchildren Beth and Daniel who reside in Missouri.
