Meet the Pastor

Pastor Kate joins us from Westport Point UMC as a Provisional Elder.  She is seeking ordination within the United Methodist Church and hopes to accomplish that in June of 2023.  She has recently graduated with her Doctorate in Ministry with a focus on Chaplaincy from Liberty University, and her passion for outreach lies in working with First Responders.  Prior to coming to Chicopee, Kate served as an Assistant to the Pastor at Northside UMC in Brewster, MA for five years, and graduated with her Masters in Divinity from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary in Lynchburg, Virginia in 2013.  In 2016 she was appointed at Westport Point UMC where she completed her Methodist ordination academic studies at Boston University School of Theology in 2017-2019.
During her time in school and at the previous appointments, Pastor Kate has enjoyed helping with various community events and being the bridge between the church and the world.  She looks forward to making this happen not only as the Pastor of Faith UMC but also as the new Chaplain for the Massachusetts State Police.  Lastly, Pastor Kate hopes that Faith UMC can be a beacon of light and lead the way for positive change by bringing the community together in various ways, so that we can share our faith and be the change we all wish to see in the world.
