There will be two receptions where you can meet Missy on Sunday, July 10, in Perry Hall from 10:30 – 11:00AM and 12:00 – 12:30PM.
I have been Methodist since before I was born as my father has served as a pastor in the Rio Texas Conference all my life. As a result, I grew up all over South Texas, moving every three to four years as my dad served at various churches. I attended Southwestern University and graduated in 2004 with a B.A. in Religion. Then I moved to North Carolina to study at Duke Divinity School where I graduated with my Masters of Divinity in 2007—GO BLUE DEVILS! I was ordained an elder in 2010, but am currently going through a transition process to become an ordained deacon so that I can focus on my passion of connecting God’s gifted people with the needs of the world. Before coming to TUMC, I’ve served at Lake Travis UMC (Austin) and First UMC (New Braunfels). I am married to Ryan, who is also an ordained elder. He currently serves as the Campus Minister for the United Campus Ministry at Texas State University in San Marcos. We have two children, Addison (5) and Jacob (3). In my free time, I enjoy reading, cross-stitching, spending time with my family and friends, and cheering on my Duke Blue Devils during basketball season.
