Meet Our New Pastor

  Meet Our New Pastor  

We are pleased to introduce you to
AVUMC’s new pastor, Rev. Angie Kotzmoyer.

Please read the official announcement from our
District Superintendent:


Members and Friends of Applewood Valley United Methodist Church,

It is my pleasure to share with you that in consultation with your Staff Parish Relations Committee,  Bishop Karen Oliveto and her Cabinet have appointed Rev. Angela Kotzmoyer as the new lead pastor for your congregation as of July 1st.  

Pastor Angie is currently serving as the Associate Pastor at Park Hill United Methodist Church.  As a young pastor, she brings with her a proven record of accomplishment of leadership at Park Hill UMC, the Mountain Sky Conference, and the larger United Methodist Church. She is indeed one of the top young clergy of our Conference. She will be able to build upon the work of Pastor Michele and help move the ministry of this church to a new and exciting level.  Both Pastor Angie and her wife, Colleen, are excited to be coming to this church.

In the meantime, I know that you will be fully present with Pastor Michele in extending your deep appreciation for her ministry and preparing for a new chapter in the life of this congregation.

In Christ,

Rev. Paul Kottke

Mile High Metro District Superintendent

We are all very blessed to celebrate her appointment at our church.
