Meet our pastor


Troy Sellers

After many prayers we have a new pastor starting July 1st. While we will truly miss Pastor Marilyn and all that she has done for our Newfane UMC Congregation, We wish her well on her retirement and next appointment in June. Some of you may know him. He has strong Christian values and deep roots in the United Methodist faith growing up as a Methodist minister’s son at Emmanuel United Methodist Church in Lockport, NY. He served as part time local pastor for two United Methodist Churches in the Western NY area. After living and raising their family in the Newfane NY area for 26 years, he retired from teaching at Newfane Central School. They decided to return to Chautauqua County to a property where they could spend summer days sitting and relaxing on the front porch and watching the beautiful sunsets over Lake Erie. But the Lord has called him back to Newfane, Please welcome Troy Sellers as Pastor to Newfane United Methodist Church.

We will be welcoming Troy as a half time appointment to Newfane UMC and he will also be serving Warrens Corners UMC. He will be using Newfane UMC parsonage. Our goal is still to be a full-time church and with your help over the next three years and beyond we are hoping to obtain that goal once again. This appointment will help us be able to rebuild financially and we hope to continue to grow our congregation and the mission of Newfane UMC. We are excited for the congregation to meet Troy as we vision and plan for the future of Newfane UMC! During this transition process if you have any questions or concerns, please ask a member of the SPRC committee.

Come, join us.
