Who We Are

The people of The United Methodist Church are part of the second largest Protestant denomination in the United States. Our worldwide connection includes approximately 12.8 million members.

In the words of founder John Wesley (1703-1791), "A Methodist is... one who loves the Lord his God with all his heart, with all his soul, with all his mind, and with all his strength."

Jose Arturo Perez, Pastor

Jose Arturo Perez has been serving La Trinidad UMC in Pharr, Texas, since April of 2014. He grew up in McAllen, Texas, as a member of El Divino Redentor Methodist Church in McAllen, Texas. Before serving La Trinidad UMC, Pastor Perez was an active lay member at El Mesias Methodist Church in Mission, Texas, where he and his family were members for over 35 years. He has always loved serving our Lord in whatever means he is called for - leading worship, giving the sermon, participating in the service, teaching Bible study, teaching Sunday school, managing the seasonal church decorations, banners, altar, and flowers, really serving to fill any need of the Church. We are blessed to have Pastor Perez at La Trinidad UMC.
