Pastor Paula Stewart and family

A native of New Jersey, Pastor Paula has been a resident of Toledo for the last 30 years. She began her Christian journey of faith through New Horizon United Methodist Church under Rev. James Glover as a Lay Leader, becoming a Certified Candidate for Ordained Ministry there. She was appointed as a Licensed Local Pastor to Collingwood United Methodist Church in 2002 where she pursued and received her Masters in Divinity from United Theological Seminary. Paula was ordained an Elder in the United Methodist Church in 2013.

Prior to her call to ministry, she worked in the nonprofit sector as an Executive Director of an Ambulatory Health Center; an Executive Director of a Homeless Shelter Association and lastly as a Lease Administrator for Dana Commercial Credit.

She has served two urban congregations and two rural congregations. (Collingwood, Central, Elliston Zion and LaPointe) Her joy has been to see these communities of faith strive to embrace their calling to incarnational mission work where they reside.
