Michael Lim

DIRECTOR of COMMUNICATIONS and TECHNOLOGY

Mike and his wife Robin have been an active part of the Canyon Lake UMC church family since May of 2018. Previous to joining the church staff in November of 2021, Mike served on the CLUMC Church Leadership Council with the SPRC committee.

Mike has spent 20+ years in the tech industry as a small business IT Consultant designing and supporting all aspects of SMB infrastructure. In his spare time, Mike enjoys spending time with his family, wife Robin and son Aaron, along with interests in Baseball and Motorsports Racing.

As the world continues to become more and more digitized, the church desires to stay in touch and up-to-date as well. Keeping in touch with one another is key to a strong community of faith. And having all our equipment and connectional tools running smoothly is paramount to that communication – both within our church family and out into the neighborhoods around Canyon Lake. You will be seeing wonderful things come to fruition because of Mike’s ministry in the area of communication and technology. And there will be servant ways for many of you to participate with him in this important work for the church and its continued spreading of God’s love.

Perry Dean

Director Of Music Ministries

I have loved music for as long as I can remember.   As soon as I could, I joined the church choir.  I was the only middle school kid who sang in the Sanctuary Choir at Pleasanton FUMC.  There was something special about making music that intrigued and inspired me.  I guess that’s why I wanted to be a musician.  I received my Bachelors Degree in Music from Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos where I met the “love of my life”, Halcy Martin.  We have been married for 34 years and have 3 children, 2 dogs and 3 cats.  I have served as a Minister of Music for over 40 years and I have also taught choirs in Texas Public Schools for 34 years.  When I’m not in front of a choir, I enjoy hiking, fishing and traveling with my family.
