Reverend Mike Dubbs
Rev. Dubbs grew up in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania. He attended Bloomsburg University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Business and Office Administration in 1986. He attended Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington D.C. and graduated with a Master of Divinity in 2007. He worked as a township manager in Bloomsburg before serving as a youth pastor and later as a pastor at Millville United Methodist Church. He moved in July 2011 from Mount Union to Southern Pines to live in a house he inherited from the late Lt. Col. William Dubbs and the late Therese Dubbs. Rev. Dubbs was an active firefighter with the Mount Union Fire Department and a member of the Huntingdon County Habitat for Humanity. His special interest and hobbies include, outdoor activities, hiking, bike-riding, kayaking, golf, disc golf, photography and do-it-yourself projects such as carpentry.
Rev. Dubbs has two daughters, both of whom live in Pennsylvania. Michelle, 24 graduated from Wilkes University and teaches Mathematics at the Muncy Area High School, and Megan, 21 is a junior at Messiah College, majoring in Consumer Education. His parents, Joanne and Dick Pileski also live in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania, and are planning a visit to Southern Pines and The Community Congregational Church.
An alter-ego, Dubbsy the Clown serves as a volunteer at FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital as one of the Hospital Clowns. The clowns visit patients, families and staff at the hospital on Wednesday afternoons. Rev. Dubbs is also a member of the Southern Pines Rotary.
Rev. Mike has been on several mission trips around the country and around the world, and experiences from those trips often serve as examples used in his sermons. “I have been blessed to be able to travel as a part of mission teams, and really see God’s work in action. It has been wonderful!” The office at the church contains many photos and other memorabilia from some of these trips, and Rev. Mike invites anyone to stop by. Almost everything in the office has a story behind it, including some things already in the collection from right here at The Community Congregational Church.
