Our Pastor

img_9301V. H. “Sonnye” Dixon, the lead pastor at Hobson UMC,  a licensed local pastor in the Tennessee Annual Conference of The United Methodist Church, is known as a passionate advocate for public education, a champion of human and civil rights for all people, and a person unafraid to speak truth to power in political, social, education and religious communities. He first came to Hobson as an unpaid lay minister and he has grown into one of the most prophetic, risk-taking, caring pastors in Nashville.

Pastor Sonnye has long felt God’s call to provide pastoral support and hospitality especially to people pushed to the margins of society, including children, people struggling with addiction, people who are homeless or living in poverty, people of color, gay/lesbian/bisexual/transgender persons, the elderly poor and those without health care who are mentally and physically ill.

With this in mind, a typical day in the life of our pastor may find him in court or at the county jail, praying with a church member who has run afoul of the law; praying with a friend going into surgery; reading to or having lunch with children in a local public school; meeting a father at a crack house to convince his addicted daughter to go into treatment; leading a vigil in opposition of capital punishment on the night of a scheduled execution; volunteering to accompany police to tell a mother than her child has been shot in a gang fight; or speaking at a rally to support U.S.immigration reform and loving the strangers among us. Pastor Sonnye declares that Christians are called “to love everyone, without exception, because God’s love for us is unchanging, unconditional and unshakeable.”

A native of Nashville, Tenn., Pastor Sonnye and his late wife, Metro Nashville educator Gail Dixon, raised two adult children, Sonja, a Metro Nashville teacher, and Trey (V.H., III), a human resource manager.
