|Barry Massing, Custodian|
Hi, my name is Barry Massing, and I serve Ocala West United Methodist Church as the church custodian. I was born and lived in Rochester, New York for over 50 years. After marrying my wife, Nancy, I became a Christian and joined a congregation of the United Methodist church. After the sudden death of our church custodian, my pastor approached me to see if I would become the interim custodian (as he knew I worked as a school custodian for many years.) I found that I really enjoyed bringing a shine to our church, keeping it looking great as a welcoming home for those seeking to worship. When we moved to Ocala, Florida we became members here at Ocala West. When the position of church custodian opened, I again sought to serve God by cleaning His church. I have met so many people who have stopped by to inquire about our church and our services by working here. I really love to greet people, to make them smile or laugh so that they know they are loved, valued, and welcomed here.
