Meet Our Pastor

Hello, Brooke Road UMC!

I am so excited to accompany you on this part of our Christian life journey.

I grew up on the West Side of Chicago, so coming to Brooke Road is like coming back home to my childhood. This city girl went to the country but has come back to the city!

First, I would like to thank you for the radical hospitality shown to me and my family when we joined the Community Dinner on June 24, 2017. Some of the leaders have already reached out to me and I have had a chance to sit down to talk with them. I hope to also take the time in the coming weeks/months to visit with all of you.

I want to emphasize to you that, during my time at Brooke Road,
I promise to love each of you as Jesus loves you. You may be uncomfortable with that or you may feel you don’t deserve it, but you have no choice in this… I will love you as my neighbor, as my brother/sister in Christ, and as a Child of God who was created in God’s image!

Let us walk hand-in-hand while we do God’s work. Let us become the hands and feet of Jesus Christ.
Let us be, for the world, the body of Christ.

Pastor Nancy
