Pastor Linda was appointed part-time to Croton United Methodist Church in 2021. Although retired as of 2020, she has failed miserably by continuing in paid ministry up to this writing.
Pastor Linda has a Bachelor of Science degree in Social Work from Ball State University, a Master of Science degree in Counseling Psychology from Northwest Missouri State University and a Master of Divinity from United Theological Seminary. She has served churches in Toledo, Batavia, the Linworth area of Columbus, the Ohio State University District, Canal Winchester, and Heath. She has also worked as a hospital and hospice chaplain in various settings up until 2022. (Slowly she is figuring out how retirement works).
In her free time, Pastor Linda bakes cakes for Columbus Celebration Cakes, which has as its mission to ensure that every child has a cake for his/her/their birthday.
She also volunteers weekly with the Cozy Cat Cottage, a no-kill cat shelter in Powell. (She really does like most cats). She also enjoys Yoga, reading, embroidery and other crafts.
Pastor Linda keeps Office Hours on Thursdays. If you need to talk with her, she is happy to set a time to meet on Thursday or another day as needed. Please call, text or email so a workable time can be found.
