Pastor Drew Davis was born in Martinsville, VA, where he began a long journey of education and religious growth that has led him to his position here at Temecula United Methodist Church. Pastor Drew attended Virginia Intermont College, where he received a degree in Fine Arts with a concentration in Vocal Performance. It was at VI where he met his wife, Gretchen, and in 1997, they both graduated from VI and got married just one week later.

Following graduation, Pastor Drew became the Youth Director of The First United Methodist Church of Bristol, TN. This was not Pastor Drew's first leadership role in the church, as in 1994, he served as a summer intern at Lone Oak Baptist Church in Axton, VA, and Midway Baptist Church in Bristol, VA in 1995. It was during his three years of youth leadership at 1st Church Bristol that Pastor Drew received his calling to ministry and moved to San Diego, CA, to attend Fuller Theological Seminary, where he received his Masters in Divinity in 2006.

While in pastoral leadership in the California Pacific Annual Conference, Pastor Drew has had the blessing of serving at Hope United Methodist Church in Rancho Bernardo, North Coast United Methodist Church in Oceanside, and now is blessed to serve at Temecula United Methodist Church.

Pastor Drew has a passion to maintain a welcoming and affirming space for our LGBTQIA+ siblings and holds a firm affirmation that all are loved and of sacred worth in the eyes of faith and in the heart of grace. Pastor Drew desires to be active with the affirming advocates in the Temecula Valley to create safe spaces not only at Temecula UMC but also to build safe and welcoming spaces throughout Temecula.

It is a blessing for Pastor Drew, his wife Gretchen, and their two children to have found a place in the community of TUMC.
