Meet Our Staff



Chris Sharlike

Office Manager

To put it very briefly, Chris makes the church ‘tick.’

She oversees the daily operations of the church office, provides administrative support to the senior pastor, schedules all activities that take place at the church… and much, much more.

When she isn’t making sure the church is running on all cylinders, she’s likely spending time with her family, and volunteering in community outreach events.


Deb Layton

Office Assistant & Membership Secretary


Dusty Wallace

Communications & Modern Worship

A proud graduate of Big Walnut High School, Dusty is thrilled to be serving in the community that gave him so much during his teen years.

Dusty oversees SUMC Communications and the music & production portions of our Modern Worship Services. You can see some of his handiwork on our Web & Social Media channels @SunburyUMC.


Heidi Stimmel

Director of Children’s Ministries

Being the Director of Children’s Ministries, Heidi oversees an array of important events, classes, policies, and events that are specifically tailored for kids and their families.

If you’re familiar with our Vacation Bible School, Summer Splash, Crossroads Sunday School, and much more… You’ve seen some of Heidi’s work come to life.


Monica Swank

Director of Adult Ministries

Monica is likely one of the first people you’ll meet at SUMC, and for good reason. As Director of Adult Ministries, she’s the primary source of information to get you welcomed, plugged-in, and familiar with our church family.

Currently a seminary student seeking her Masters of Divinity, Monica also serves as the Chaplain for our friends and neighbors, the BST&G Fire Department.
