Pastor: Deval Mason
I was appointed minister of Weaverville United Methodist Church on July 1, 2018. I am excited and pleased to be part of the Weaverville UMC family. I look forward to sharing Christ’s love together with you in our community.

I was born and grew up in Kansas. I later graduated from Duke Divinity School and have spent 35 years as a United Methodist minister. I have a wonderful wife whose name is Barbara. We have five fantastic children, Michel, Kristen, Kayla, Melissa, and Angela. My joy is the love I have for my wife, my children, and my awesome Savior Jesus.

God is so good! God has blessed me in so many ways over the years through family, friends and the church. I know God will bless each of us during our time together here in Weaverville, because God is good all the time!
