Regional Coordinator for Pennsylvania USA

Published 19th September 2019 by jane leadbetter

Welcome Revd Dr A. Michele Somerville as Regional Coordinator for Pennsylvania USA. Michele has served with the UMC for over 20 years. Her second career as a pastor has brought her much joy and, even when she retired in 2018, she continued to work part-time serving two churches. When first introduced to Messy Church, she began Messy Church East Canton United Methodist in November 2018. Michele began a ministry of biblical storytelling in 2008 and enjoys writing and performing monologues and scripture by heart.
Michele writes that she ‘loves working with the Messy Church leadership team in Canton and telling anyone who will listen about Messy Church.’ She has been particularly drawn to the intergenerational component of Messy Church.
