Elon Sylvester was appointed pastor of the Bellmore United Methodist Church effective July 1, 2016.  He is a graduate of the Drew Theological School with a Master of Divinity degree.  He also holds a Master’s degree in Urban Policy and Administration, and a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science.

Pastor is passionate about ministry and pursues every opportunity to do service for God and for his community, and to share the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  With the encouragement of a number of pastors and the support of the District Superintendent of Long Island West, Rev. Kenny Yi, in 2013 Pastor Sylvester and his colleagues pioneered a new church in Pelham NY, which is in the NY Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church.  While pastoring this new church, Pastor Sylvester also ministered as a Clergy Liaison with the NYPD 12th District.

Pastor Sylvester has had a long and successful secular career working as a manager for the City and State of New York; he recently graduated from the Citizen’s Police Academy of the New York Police Dept.  Pastor Sylvester and his wife Tani have 4 children – 2 girls; 26 and 10 years old, and 2 boys 11 & 8 years old.
