Meet Our Staff

Church Staff
Rev. Erin Muckleroy
Lead Pastor
Erin joins us as of July 1st having previously served as the Associate Pastor at Pollard Methodist Church in Tyler.  She brings with her a beautiful 2-year old daughter, Hannah and her husband, Adam also serves as lead pastor at the methodist church in Canton.  Erin shamelessly cheers on the Kansas City Chiefs, but is ready to put on some red for the Van Vandals!  We are excited to have Rev. Erin Muckleroy and her family with us.  
Jeff Siemens
Youth Director
Jeff came to Van UMC in October 2009 just 1 month before marrying his bride, Emily in November 2009.  Together they have built a home with 2 rowdy and rambunctious sons - Drew and Kyle.  It won't take you long to figure out that Jeff loves all things sports and especially likes his Duke Blue Devils, Minnesota Vikings, and Minnesota Twins.  He has an incredibly kind heart for students and his strength is making people laugh and making anyone feel welcome at anytime.

Mike Johnston
Choir Director
Kelly Lockwood
Interim Pianist
Kelly is a no stranger to Van UMC or to Van.  Before re-joining us in January 2017, Kelly served as our full-time pianist for 6 years.  She is married to her husband, Randell Lockwood and stays busy as the full-time choir teacher at Van Middle school and being Mom to her two boys: Austin and Logan.  Kelly is incredibly gifted with a beautiful voice and can play the piano as if it was the easiest instrument to play.  She has a warm smile and we love having her back with us at Van UMC!
