Welcome New Pastor Rev. Penny Ford

Please welcome our new pastor Rev. Penny Ford as she begins her ministry here at Trinity United Methodist Tuscaloosa.

Rev. Ford grew up in Tuscaloosa and graduated from Central High School.  Following high school she graduated from Birmingham-Southern College, and then went on to receive a Masters of Divinity from the Pacific School of Religion.

Rev. Ford has been a pastor for over 20 years which has allowed her to serve in a variety of positions and settings, including Christ Church UMC, Vestavia Hills UMC, and as the Campus Minister and Wesley Foundation Director at Jacksonville State University.  Most recently she served as the Senior Pastor of Carrollton UMC.

In her down time, she enjoys music, quilting, science fiction and playing with her four year old son, Jamieson.  As you might suspect, Jamieson’s favorite pastimes include playing outside, superheroes, making chocolate chip muffins and jumping on furniture!
