Rev. Cheryl Smith Reach Pastor
Cheryl Smith hails from New Mexico, but has been a Texan for most of her adult life. Mother of three grown children and grandmother to four, she brings with her the life experience of a professional teacher (9 years,) licensed professional counselor (20 years,) plus 16 years in United Methodist ministry.
Cheryl has a passion for translating the good news of life in Christ from a static understanding to a dynamic way of life. Finding new life in scripture thrills her and she loves to be in dialogue with people about how ancient scripture impacts modern life. She find herself energized by spiritual formation, caring ministries, holistic health, social justice and direct ministry to people. Although she loves time with family and has a daily meditation practice, working in the kingdom of God is like play to her and does not count as “work.” She has been at John Wesley since November 2015 and is delighted to be serving here.
