Rev. Pitsch gave years of dedicated service to Colington United Methodist Church, though his reach is far beyond those walls.

“What an amazing career Rev. Pitsch has had,” said Woodard. “It’s not about the 100 years, but it’s about what he has accomplished in those 100 years. He has a passionate voice and is a tireless advocate for the forgotten in our community. Every community needs someone like Rev. Pitsch.”
