Rev. Rex Manasco, pastor of Halltown UMC in the Northwest District, died Thursday June 3, 2010, following a brave battle with Leukemia.
The arrangements are as follows:
Bishop Will Willimon says, “Last summer the Northwest District and Conference Board of Ordained Ministry worked together to make sure Rex achieved his local pastor license. After learning his health prognosis, Rex’s one request to me and Mike Stonbraker was to help him get his license because he wanted to die a United Methodist pastor. We are inspired by his great desire and commitment to live out God’s calling to be a United Methodist pastor. We are grateful for the years he served the Halltown congregation.”
Please keep Rex’s wife Carla, his family, friends and the Halltown congregation in your prayers.
