Three Congregations, One Ministry, One God

We have a church near you! Grand View is so excited to begin a God-led working relationship with two local church campuses; Wesley UMC in East Dubuque, IL, and Center Grove UMC. We know God will bless these partnerships and great things are to come to these three Christian Community locations. This is a new day dawning in the life of the Church, and we'd love to show you how God is living, breathing, and doing ministry in each of these three locations.

Rev. Tom Shinkle, Lead Pastor

Rev. Tom Shinkle has been the lead pastor at Grand View since 2009. His leadership expertise in cultivating and growing vibrant churches has led him from small rural churches to where he is today. Grand View is one of the highest attended United Methodist Churches in Iowa.

Crystal Weber, Multi-Site Campus Pastor

Crystal comes to us from Earlville United Parish, where she served as interim pastor since November 2020. Crystal graduated from University of Dubuque Theological Seminary with certification in Congregational Leadership in May 2020.

"I’m so excited to begin this new journey. I am beyond blessed to be a part of this amazing Christian Community at Grand View. I am looking forward to seeing what we can do together as a Christian Community in Dubuque."
