 Welcome to our new Pastors!

Our Staff Relations committee and Dr. Jocelyn Roper, our District Superintendent met and she explained that High Street UMC hasbeen selected by Bishop Palmer to be part of a new program termed the “Global Village Urban Collective” which is in-tended to bring urban churches together to share joint activities such as bible study, and fellowship programs. Our ur- ban partner in this program will be the Covenant United Methodist Church, here in Springfield.
To implement this program, we have two pastors assigned to us. Our new Senior Pastor is Rev. Cynthia Atwater, who is coming from Covenant United Methodist Church. Our new Associate Pastor is Heather Husted, who is coming from McKinley United Methodist Church as an Associate Pastor, she will serve part-time at High Street and part-time atCovenant. Cynthia and Heather’s appointment is effective on August 1st and Cynthia will be with us on her first Sunday, August 4th.
Cynthia is a graduate of Northwestern University and comes to us with experience in the public sector prior to attending the Pittsburgh Theological Seminary.
Heather is a new seminary graduate, she received her undergraduate degree in Biblical Studies from Eastern New Mexico University and her Master of Divinity degree from United Theological Seminary in May. Heather was commissioned as a provisional elder in the West Ohio Conference last month. She comes to us from McKinley United Methodist Church in Dayton, Ohio but grew up in Elida, New Mexico. Heather has worked as a youth pastor, family life coordinator and as a missionary in Central China for four years.
We are thankful to have been blessed with not one but two pastors, this is an opportunity to impact the communities of Springfield. As quoted by Lay Leader Ryan Roosen, “This is a new and unique way to be the hands and feet of Jesus.”When you see Cynthia and Heather in the hallways of our church, please give them a big friendly High Street Welcome!! Congratulations Cynthia and Heather on your new appointments and Welcome to High Street UMC!!
