The Staff at Mount Vernon United Methodist Church are Here to Help and Lead

Terra Amundson – Senior Pastor 

Pastor Terra Amundson joined our congregation in July 2020 and endeavors to meet people where they are, as they are. She would love to talk to you about your faith and invites you to join us for worship or our next community event. She is always happy to have conversation, sit with a person and pray with you as needed. We are so blessed to have her as our Senior Pastor.
