Our Church History

The First United Methodist Church of Monahans was founded on February 17, 1930 with fifteen charter members. At the time, Monahans had a population of about 1,118. Part-time pastors served the church until September 1931, when Rev. Hershel S. Burgin became the first appointed minister of the church. The present sanctuary was completed on March 16, 1952, with Rev. W.R. Houston as pastor. We are currently in the El Paso District, New Mexico Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church.
