Hello Hoover First United Methodist Church People!

I am Angela Teel and I am excited to be appointed as your new Pastor. The official move day is Wednesday, June 28th and I will be setting up in the office that day. My first Sunday will be on July 2nd. I look forward to meeting everyone and worshipping together. As we begin our ministry together, I thought it would helpful to briefly introduce myself.

I was born and raised in Huntsville.  I have three younger brothers.  I am quiet, but don’t worry, I am much tougher than I look.     I have several hobbies which include: exercising, hiking, exploring new places, trying different restaurants and foods, and reading.  My favorite genres are mystery, suspense, and thrillers. I am collecting and reading several different series right now.  If you can’t find me, check the library and the bookstores. J

I am a graduate of Huntingdon College in Montgomery and Candler School of Theology in Atlanta.  I met my husband David at pastoral licensing school. He is also a United Methodist pastor and serves at Forrest Chapel United Methodist Church in Hartselle. We have been married for ten years.

I have so many other things I could tell you about myself.  However, I want to get to know each of you and your stories. Again, I am excited and honored to be coming to be the Pastor at Hoover First UMC. I look forward to the ways in which we will serve together in ministry to the community.

Pastor Angela
