Leadership | Royal Heights United Methodist Church

Rev. Steve Thomas


My name is Steve Thomas.

I am a native to Joplin, and I love my community. I have many fond memories of our area and its growth, although I miss many of our original business’s and eateries. I am a product of Joplin schools, and very thankful for my education there, graduating from the former Parkwood High School.

I have two wonderful daughters, two awesome son-in-laws, and six fantastic grandchildren.

I worked secularly for 32 years in the Furniture Business. I have taught and preached in the Methodist church for over 20 years, and I truly enjoy the work of the ministry. I believe the Ministers main goal and objective is to “equip God’s people for works of service.” I believe in the Truths of the Holy Bible, and I enjoy sharing them.

At Royal Heights Church I’ve found a loving, caring, sharing group of believers who are truly welcoming and desire to share and live out the “Great Commission.” Come and Worship with us anytime.

Thank You,

Pastor Steve
