"As a child of God, I am a work in progress. I learn more about the Lord as I walk daily with him. I am blessed to serve as a leader in the United Methodist Church for such a time as this. I pray that you will find a deeper connection with Jesus as we journey together through this season of life and ministry together." Pastor LuAnn
