Rev. Chuck Ireson
I joined the ministry team here at Bunker Hill UMC in July of 2022. I am originally from the Elkin-Jonesville area in Yadkin County, NC and graduated from Starmount High School in 1981. I have been married to my wonderful wife and best friend, Sandra, since 1982 and we have two children and seven grandchildren. Sandra is also a United Methodist minister and is the pastor at Pine Grove UMC in Winston-Salem, NC.
I graduated from UNC Greensboro with a BA degree in Psychology and have a Master of Divinity degree from Duke University Divinity School. I was ordained as an Elder in the United Methodist Church in 2006. My hobbies include spending time with my grandchildren, playing the guitar and drums, hunting and fishing, and cheering for the Blue Devils!
