Director of Adult Ministries Email: Patti Connelly
Patti joined Boone UMC in December 2014 as the Director of Adult Ministries and is excited to be working with seniors and older adults. Patti and her husband Ken are parents to five grown kids and enjoy being grandparents to their awesome grandchildren that live nearby. A graduate of Marshall University and United Theological Seminary, she recently retired from nursing with over 30 years experience in quality of care issues for Medicare beneficiaries. Patti is a provisional deacon in the United Methodist Church and will be working toward ordination with Boone UMC. She has a passion for providing opportunities for seniors/older adults to serve and be served through church ministries such as the lunch bunch, Bible Studies, support groups, outreach and so much more. Besides adult ministries, Patti is a member of the choir, enjoys teaching Sunday School and is a Stephen Minister. In her spare time, Patti enjoys family time, helping Ken with his prison ministry work, reading, banging on the piano and people time. Patti and Ken are enjoying the High Country and so are their Boston Terriers.
