More about Rev. Magrey deVega

Senior Pastor at Hyde Park United Methodist in Tampa, Fla., since July 2015, the Rev. Magrey deVega assumed the role as a sort of homecoming celebration. He had served as Associate Pastor at Hyde Park from 2000-2007 and grew up in the Tampa Bay area, even receiving his bachelor’s degree from Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, Fla.

He later moved to Ohio to earn his Master of Divinity degree from United Theological Seminary in Dayton.

From 2007-2015 the Rev. deVega devotedly served as pastor of St. Paul’s United Methodist Church (UMC) in Cherokee, Iowa. He credits this experience as teaching him a great deal about building relationships and the power of community and resilience.

“My first few years at St. Paul’s UMC in Cherokee were a bit of a culture shock. The closest Target was an hour away and there were no tall buildings around. But when record flooding hit and brought devastation to hundreds of homes, I witnessed the community truly come together,” said the Rev. deVega. “Everyone in the town looks out for each other and the church became an epicenter for relief and recovery. I learned suffering really does make a person stronger.”

In addition to being a pastor, the Rev. deVega is the author of 10 books, his latest being Hope for Hard Times: Lessons on Faith from Elijah and Elisha. Some of his other titles include Awaiting the Already: An Advent Journey Through the Gospels , Songs for the Waiting: Devotions Inspired by the Hymns of Advent and One Faithful Promise: The Wesleyan Covenant for Renewal. He is also the Leadership Editor for Covenant Bible Study and a contributor to Feasting on the Gospels as well as numerous volumes on preaching and worship planning. He serves as the curriculum writer for numerous small group studies and has even been selected as the featured speaker for numerous conferences around the country, such as The 2018 Clergy Day Apart Conference at Bethel International UMC in Columbus.
