I love to learn about other cultures, listen to all sorts of music, watch science fiction movies, read books by mystics, eat Indian food, and play boardgames. My greatest joy is spending time with my family.
Pastor of Missions and Discipleship
I enjoy listening to all kinds of music, watching movies with my husband, being in nature, and riding motorcycles. I am passionate about being engaged in the community and love meeting new people.
Next Generation Coordinator
Doesn’t take long to notice that I’m from the UK. Passionate about Next Generation Ministry. Enjoy playing board games, watching movies, reading comics, baking and playing Dungeons and Dragons. Your basic all-round nerd really!
Pastor of Congregational Care
My personal interests are (in no particular order) music –most genres -, sports, being physically active, and travel. Spending time with family and friends is at the top of my list of things I like to do, particularly when combined with one or more of the list above.
In addition to being the Connect Coordinator at FUMC, Gwen teaches college-level Renaissance/Reformation and Western Civilization classes. She is passionate about backpacking, overseas travel, backpacking WHILE overseas (if you have a lot of time and patience, ask her about her 2016 walk on the Camino in Spain), running, and reading about medieval and Renaissance philosophers and theologians.
I play music because it brings us together, and we have more commonalities than differences. I love podcasts, books, and late night discussion of philosophy, anthropology, and art. Nature centers my soul.
