The Rev. Larry Clark, who has served as executive director of Toledo Area Ministries for six years, has been named pastor of Sylvania First United Methodist Church.
During Mr. Clark s tenure at TAM, the organization expanded the number of ministries while merging two administrative groups into one.
For several years now, I have felt the call back to parish ministry, he said.
I long to have the opportunity to lead worship on a regular basis. I want to be reconnected to a congregation and share the joys of weddings and baptisms
as well as help people through sorrow and grief at the end of life, he said.
The appointment will be effective July 1.
