Wesley Alumna to Lead UMCOR

Jul 08 2013

Beginning September 16, the Rev. Dr. Denise Honeycutt will serve as the interim deputy general secretary of the United Methodist Committee on Relief, a disaster relief and development organization. She graduated from Wesley with her Doctor of Ministry degree in 2007 and currently serves as pastor of St. Matthews United Methodist Church in Annandale, Virginia. Previously, she served as a missionary and worked for The United Methodist Church’s Southeastern Jurisdiction and Virginia Annual Conference.

 “When I was in college I put an index card on my mirror with the word ‘yes,’ which represented my stance in life toward God.” This openness, she said, freed her to be available for how God will use her.

We invite our graduates and friends to hold Denise in prayer as she enters this new ministry. For people and communities in crisis, UMCOR is a visible presence of Christ’s love.
