Church Exterior


Pastor Todd, Christina, and their daughters Madeline, Ava, and Harper, are delighted to return to the Embarras River District! They previously served at Carrier Mills First UMC in Cache River District and at Neoga Grace/Toledo/Etna UMCs from 2014-2018.

Pastor Todd completed his Masters in Divinity at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary in Evanston, IL in 2014 and was ordained in June 2017. His favorite parts of ministry are building relationships, exploring church history, and service/mission work.

Christina is the Illinois Senior Policy Coordinator for Faith in Place, an interfaith earth care non-profit based in Chicago. She travels around Illinois teaching faithful people how to care for our shared land, air, water, and each other. She also serves as the chair of the Board of Church and Society for the Illinois Great Rivers Conference of the UMC.

Madeline loves music and art. Ava loves to run and spend time with her friends. Harper enjoys riding her bike and rollerblading. The family also have a cat named Max and a golden doodle dog named Honey.
