Meet our Pastor and Church Leadership

Rev. James Laiben
My family and I recently moved from Missouri to Eastern Kentucky. In 2016, Owingsville United Methodist Church became my first appointment as a pastor. The warm hearts and open arms welcomed my wife, our four children and I into this loving congregation and our lives were changed forever. The Methodist denomination continues to challenge me to transform myself into a loving witness through my faith in Jesus Christ. I am blessed to say that this church family and my family will continue to support and encourage each other for years to come.
