About Us


Presbury traces our roots to the 1720 construction of the Presbury Methodist Meeting House located in what is now Aberdeen Proving Ground. It was a frequent preaching destination for Francis Asbury, the first bishop of American Methodism.

Our current building dates to 1968, the same year that the Methodist Church and Evangelical United Brethren joined to form the United Methodist Church.
Since 2020 Presbury has been part of the Mission Central Parish.
The Mission Central Parish is a community of eleven United Methodist Churches in Harford County and Baltimore County, MD, working together to better serve our communities and make disciples of Jesus Christ. The Parish is led by three pastors, Rev. Dr. Karin Walker, Rev. Danny Breidenbaugh, and Pastor Ryan Wiggins. There is also a contingent of retired pastors and lay speakers who assist in leading worship at many of our churches.

Our Parish is focused on reaching out in love and service as we strive to:

SERVE  Expand community engagement and impact.

LEAD    Increase mission to reach more of the least, the last, and the lost.

HOPE   Empower people to move into deeper relationship with Christ.
