Meet the Pastor

Rev. Michelle Ashley

Pastor Michelle came to Leominster United Methodist Church in 2018, fresh from earning her Master of Divinity degree from Boston University while receiving her on-the-ground training with the homeless in Boston. She brings to LUMC a passion for Biblical preaching, social justice, and empowering ordinary Christians to join in with God’s extraordinary mission in the world. Pastor Michelle was born and raised in Texas, but now proudly identifies as a New Englander. She loves spending time outdoors, cooking, eating, cultivating friendships, and exploring new places with her family. Her days off are Monday and Tuesday, and she lives in Leominster with her husband and daughter.
