3. Offering a variety of opportunities for spiritual growth, faith development, and supportive fellowship.

Rev. Grace McMullen has officially begun her ministry as our pastor!

Grace lives in Hillsborough and is married to Heath McFarland in June. She officially joined us on August 1.

Grace’s educational background includes a B.S. in International Affairs from Florida State University, graduating with high honors, and a Master of Divinity from Wake Forest School of Divinity.

A few highlights from her cover letter include: “I have a passion for fostering community: for those who are hungry for connection and understanding, and for those who long for a spiritual home where they can grow, ask questions, and are encouraged to be their whole selves. One of my greatest joys in ministry is preaching sermons that inspire, encourage, and fuel communities of faith to work for love and justice.”

We can only imagine what God has in store for us on our spiritual journey with Grace’s leadership.
