Pastor Margie joined DownRiver UMC in January 2013 as plans to merge four congregations were underway. She is passionate about introducing seekers to Jesus and showing them how life as a disciple takes their feet in a better path. She worked in marketing and public relations before sensing the call to ministry. New church starts and helping congregations function in life-giving ways are just two of her passions. She is a wife, mom to three (grown) sons, and master to two dogs: Stu, the elderly schnauzer and Mocha, the perky Pomeranian.
