Welcome to St. Francis, Pastor Brenda Newman!

We are excited to welcome Reverend Brenda Newman to our St. Francis family!  Brenda's greatest passion is the local church.  After having served as Congregational Vitality Strategist for the Uwharrie and Metro Districts the past two years, she is excited to return to the local church setting.  She enjoys creative worship, teaching, and reaching new people for Christ. 

Brenda is a graduate of Duke Divinity School and is an ordained elder in the Western North Carolina Conference where she has been serving churches for 26 years.  She has served on the Conference Council on Youth Ministries, the Bishop's Confirmation Design Team, the Salisbury District Evangelism Team, and the Asheville & Salisbury District Committees on Ordained Ministry.

Brenda is married to Rev. Don Newman, who is pastor at Memorial UMC in Charlotte.  Brenda and Don have two grown sons, Alex and Jacob.

Welcome to St. Francis, Pastor Brenda!!
