My name is William Sabiston, and I am the new Fairway District Mission Secretary. I was born and raised in Durham, NC, and attended Appalachian State University and graduated in 2015. I began my pastoral ministry in 2015 while attending Duke Divinity School, graduating in 2019. I am currently appointed to First UMC Siler City. My wife, Abby and I, married in 2017, and in June of 2020, we had our first child, Asher Ray Sabiston, who, along with his sister golden retriever Finley, is the light of our world.
As we move into this new year, we are looking to highlight congregations’ missions and service throughout the district and highlight those ministries in our district newsletter. If your congregation is engaged in mission and service ministries, we would love to hear about it. We are also looking to create a Fairway District Missions Team that represents our widespread geographic Fairway District’s unique diversity. If you are interested in being part of this district leadership team, please let me know.
I look forward to working and standing in the gap with you in our mission and service locally, nationally, and around the world. If I can be of any service to you, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. You can reach me via email at email@example.com or via text or phone call at 919-475-4841.
In Faith, Hope, and Love,
