For 20 years Lynette has served as Executive Director of Missions for St. Luke’s United Methodist Church in Orlando, Florida. For the past 8 years she has been leading the church through a fundamental shift in the way they do missions.
“We’ve been on a journey for the last 8 years reflecting on our relationships within our mission ministries, asking hard questions, and shifting our filter through which we view service. We are shifting from focusing on the volunteer experience to listening to the community; from being busy to becoming more effective; and from addressing issues to engaging people in specific places. Our goal is to reduce poverty one family…one neighborhood at a time.”
