Rev. Missy Jenson has been a United Methodist her whole life as her father served as a pastor in the Rio Texas Conference throughout her childhood. As a result, she grew up all over South Texas: Cuero, Corpus Christi, Brady, Gonzales, and San Antonio. She attended Southwestern University and graduated in 2004 with a B.A. in Religion. Then she moved to North Carolina to study at Duke University Divinity School, where she graduated with her Master of Divinity in 2007. She was ordained an elder in The United Methodist Church in 2010. Since her graduation from seminary in 2007, she has served at Lake Travis UMC (Austin), First UMC (New Braunfels), Tarrytown UMC (Austin), First UMC (Goliad) and now Oak Hill UMC.
Pastor Missy is passionate about serving Christ through missions around the world and connecting with people to discover who we are as the Body of Christ and who we were individually created to be by God. She enjoys listening to personal stories of encounters with the divine, creating unique and meaningful ways to deepen our spiritual lives, and simply being present with others for the ordinary and holy moments life brings.
When she’s not working or “momming,” you can find Pastor Missy listening to podcasts or audiobooks of all kinds or let’s be honest…napping! She also occasionally enjoys cross-stitching and during basketball season, she’ll be [loudly] cheering on the Duke Blue Devils.
