Downtown Campus

Welcome to the Downtown Campus of Buncombe Street United Methodist Church!

Our Downtown Campus is our flagship campus, and it is the headquarters of our many ministries under the leadership of senior pastor, Dr. Bob Howell. Dr. Howell served as an associate pastor at BSUMC back in the 1980’s, and he was delighted to “come home” to Buncombe Street when he was appointed senior pastor in 2016.

Although our Sanctuary is located at 200 Buncombe Street, our Downtown Campus occupies the entire block formed by Buncombe, Academy, College & Richardson Streets. Our administrative offices can be found at 211 College Street, and this is the most convenient entrance during the week.

On Sunday mornings, we have greeters ready and waiting at every entrance to help our guests find their way around. There is ample parking in the large lot on Buncombe Street across from the Sanctuary.
