Meet the Senior Pastor - Perry Montgomery

Perry Montgomery

Hello Salem Church!!

I’m Perry Montgomery your new Pastor. I am so excited to meet each of you and to be part of a church with a rich history. I realize it will be a while before we are able to meet in person so I wanted to tell you a little about myself and family. I am married to Jill and have two step children Julianna and Nicholas. Jill and I are long time residence in the area. I grew up in Carmel and worked in the commercial insurance industry for many years before realizing my call to ministry.

I started in Fishers at a new church starting as a volunteer youth director. In 2008 while playing golf I received a call informing me of my first appointment to a church. I served Pleasant Grove in Carmel until my move to Zionsville in 2013. I will be serving Zionsville as an Associate Pastor and will be the Sr. Pastor at Salem. I am looking forward to being able to share resources with you by offering

Bible studies and other programing. I can be reached through the church office at Zionsville UMC 317-873-2623 or via email at


I am looking forward to this exciting adventure and seeing Gods hand in the midst of it.

Grace and Peace to you all.
