More about Rev. Dr. Myron F. McCoy

The Rev. Dr. McCoy captures the essence of his ministry in three words: adaptive, steward and bridge-builder. He stresses the need to think beyond what we know today and to consider how we can be relevant for the future.

As a steward, he searches for how organizations can best utilize their talents as bridge-builders and he helps foster connections between church and community. Through his ministry, the Rev. Dr. McCoy has been able to connect with communities, governments and multi-racial and multi-economic congregations.

“At a diverse congregation like the one I am minister to, I have to understand different languages, embrace multiple theologies and speak in different dialects,” says the Rev. Dr. McCoy.

He is the Senior Pastor at the First United Methodist Church (UMC) at the Chicago Temple. He became Senior Pastor after serving as President of the Saint Paul School of Theology for 11 years.

In Chicago, the Rev. Dr. McCoy has also worked in various capacities at Saint Mark UMC and South Shore UMC. He also did interim work at Hyde Park Community UMC in Cincinnati.

The Rev. Dr. McCoy received his bachelor's degree from Ohio Wesleyan University and has an Honorary Doctor of Divinity degree from Baker University.

He has held positions at the Association of Theological Schools, United Methodist Publishing House, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary, Baker University, North Central Jurisdiction Committee on Episcopacy and the Northern Illinois Conference Board of Ordained Ministry. He was even a member of the United Methodist Senate, co-chairing the 2004-2008 Study of the Episcopacy of the UMC.

The Rev. Dr. McCoy fights against the tendency toward exclusivity in his congregation through education, ecumenical relationships and interfaith work.

“We may address God differently, but we’re all living in the same world, and we need to confront our common problems and challenges together,” says the Rev. Dr. McCoy.
