First Presbyterian Church of Conway, Arkansas, is excited to call Rev. Michael Ulasewich as the church’s next pastor.
In a congregational meeting on Sunday, July 12, 2015, the Pastor Nominating Committee presented information about the candidate to the congregation. A subsequent vote affirmed the Committee’s recommendation that Rev. Ulasewich be called as Pastor.
Rev. Ulasewich will start at FPC on August 10, and his first Sunday in the pulpit will be August 16. Details about an Installation service for Rev. Ulasewich will be announced soon.
Rev. Mike Ulasewich’s personal mission is to encourage and nurture others to a deeper faith in Christ through preaching, teaching, coaching, and pastoral presence. Pastor Mike graduated with his MDiv from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary in 2005. He also has an MA and a BA in Literature from The University of Florida, where he focused on Southern Literature. He served as solo pastor of The First Presbyterian Church of Apopka, Florida, from 2006 to 2014 and was a Resident CPE Chaplain at Tampa General Hospital before that. Most recently, he served as an English teacher at Lake Minneola High School, near Clermont, Florida.
Pastor Mike has been married to his wife, Selena, since 1999–two years after they met while they were both in the University of Florida marching band. They have three children: Rebekah is 11, Glendon is 6, and Lena is 21 months. Selena is a businesswoman, a teacher, and a wonderful Bible Study leader. Rebekah is a gifted student with a great sense of humor. Glendon is earnest yet fun. Lena is sweet and caring.
Pastor Mike enjoys reading and listening to music. He also enjoys being outside. He is a runner and cyclist and dreams of one day completing an Ironman Triathlon. He enjoys traveling and nature–particularly witnessing God’s magnificent creation. He has visited 25 of our nation’s 59 national parks and hopes to one day have visited all of them.
