My name is Josh Bizzell and I am an ordained elder in the South Georgia Conference of the United Methodist Church. I am the pastor of Byromville UMC and Drayton UMC in picturesque Dooly County, GA. I also serve as the director of the Wesley Foundation of Americus, GA — a ministry to college students at Georgia Southwestern State University and South Georgia Technical College. I have been married to my beautiful best friend, Elizabeth, since 2003, and we have two lovely daughters: Claire (b. 2007) and Caroline (b. 2009).
The Word and Spirit is designed to assist the parishioners of BUMC and DUMC and the students of GSW and SGT in their daily journey of discipleship to Jesus Christ. Word and Spirit Guides are posted here weekly for use in guiding the disciple in prayer, meditation, and Scripture reading.
