Meet our Worship Director


Archie Woods

Worship Director


Archie’s goal is to live life out of an overflow of worship and prayer, a life centered on Christ.  Archie grew up in Dexter and his family started attending Dexter UMC when he was in 6th grade.  He graduated from Spring Arbor University with a BA in Business & Music, then went on to get his MBA also from Spring Arbor University.  He and his wife Etta are blessed with four children, Azariah, Verity, Beren, and Arkeo.

Archie now serves as worship director and has the pleasure of working with an amazing dedicated team.  He also enjoys “becoming another one of the youth” as most of the youth leaders call it.
