REVEREND JANINE PLUM
Pastor Janine describes herself as a “cradle Methodist,” because she was baptized, confirmed, married, and baptized her three children all at Trinity UMC in Flint, MI.
She felt a calling in 1999, when she realized that she “could talk to Jesus as a friend, comforter, counselor, and teacher” and Jesus became a very real presence in her life. In response, she took a position as a local pastor at Richfield UMC as she pursued a Bachelor’s degree in Family Counseling and then headed to Asbury Theological Seminary to obtain a Master of Divinity degree.
Since being appointed as our Pastor in 2015 and completing her degree remotely that same year (no small feat), Pastor Janine has had one main focus. As she puts it, “We’re not about attracting members and filling seats, but instead we are about making true Christ followers.”
