Pastor Meredith remembers telling people that she wanted to be a pastor during her sophomore year of high school. For her, when the church is at its best, it’s a place where we are all welcomed with the life-changing love of God. In this community, we see each other in the light of Christ. We have what we need to survive life’s challenges, to find joy and beauty, and to reach out in love and service. Her passion is being with the local church, walking alongside people of all ages as they grow in their faith and calling.
Meredith received her BA from Whitman College, Walla Walla, WA, in 2002, and her Masters of Divinity from Drew Theological School, Madison, NJ, in 2006. She was ordained an elder in The United Methodist Church in 2010, and served four churches in West Virginia before moving to Ridgefield in 2014. She loves both the Ridgefield church and town, and is living the dream in the Pacific Northwest.
Pastor Meredith lives with her husband Christopher, who is also a United Methodist pastor, serving Orchards UMC, and with her two young children, Anna and Ollie. In her free time, she likes to sew and knit and make lists of things she should be doing around the house.
