Senior Pastor

Her ministry has encouraged spiritual growth and engaged discipleship—emphasizing radical hospitality, shared ministry, spiritual practices, and solidarity with the poor and oppressed. Ginger contributed to and served on the editorial board for The CEB Women’s Bible (published October 2016). A life-long United Methodist, Ginger regularly presents as a featured theologian, teacher, and speaker at regional, national, and international connectional events.
