MUMC Clergy and Staff

Lead Pastor – Rev. Dillon Burns

I am so grateful and excited to be serving as the pastor at Manchester United Methodist Church. Though a Michigan native, I came to Manchester after several years in Texas where I received a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from Texas Christian University and a Master of Divinity from Perkins School of Theology.

My wife, Jennifer, and I were married in the summer of 2015. Since then, we have adopted a senior dog named Buddy and delight in spoiling him to no end. We are so thankful to be a part of the loving and welcoming community at Manchester United Methodist Church!

I am passionate about creating opportunities for all people to experience the transforming love and grace of Jesus Christ. I’d love to connect with you at any time via email (, Facebook (, or in person at church or in the community!

Deacon – Rev. Tina Zimmerman

I am the Deacon at Manchester United Methodist Church.  I was ordained in 2014 and am a graduate of Garrett Evangelical Theological Seminary.    I’ve spent many years as both a volunteer and professional Christian educator.  Manchester United Methodist Church has been my home congregation since 1994. In addition to serving as Deacon at Manchester United Methodist Church, I am also serving as the acting Director of Spiritual Formation at the Chelsea Retirement Community.  My husband, Gregg Sucha, and I have been married for over 30 years and are the parents of four beautiful grown daughters.

I love teaching and storytelling, helping to build relationships, visiting, and sharing the love and grace of God with anyone and everyone!

Secretary – Jody Sharrow

I joined the Manchester United Methodist Church staff in 2014 after the retirement of our beloved jack-of-all-trades, Sandy Smith. I am wife to Todd Ducsay and mom to three teenage daughters. I grew up in Bay City, Michigan and earned a BA in English (writing) from Adrian College and an MA in English Literature from Western Michigan University. An avid reader, my ideal vacation would be a girlfriends’ weekend at a beach cottage. Always willing to help, I am happy to be working where I can be an instrument of God’s love.
