Stephanie Woods, Pastor

I am so excited to get to know all of you and for us to begin doing ministry together! I am an alumna of Ashland University and Duke Divinity School and am almost finished with my PhD dissertation at Boston University. I have been married for 9 years to my husband David, who is a high school math teacher at Crestline High School. We have two cats, Baby and Smokey Joe. One of them will be happy to greet you if you visit the parsonage, and the other will run and hide. In our free time we enjoy playing board games, drinking good coffee, going for walks, and planning prom for David’s students. I also enjoy reading, playing flute and mountain dulcimer, running, knitting, and sewing.
