Pastor Lora came to Grace in July of 2014. She grew up in Hillsboro, KS and attended Kansas State University where she discerned a call to ministry while involved at K-State Wesley, the United Methodist Campus Ministry at K-State. Lora attended seminary at Vanderbilt Divinity School in Nashville, TN where she served as a Turner Scholar at East End United Methodist Church. She was appointed to Grace right after seminary and ordained in June 2016. Lora has a passion for inter-generational relationships, strong worship, social justice, discipleship, and how we share God’s love, the grace of Jesus Christ, and the power of the Holy Spirit on campus, in our community, and in our world.

I grew up in Bonner Springs, Kansas and I have always been active in my church, Bonner Springs United Methodist Church. While in youth, I became a leader in our district and conference activities. I have also been a youth representative at our annual conference and helped plan and lead Institute. After graduating from Bonner Springs High School, I started going to SC where I am studying Elementary Education. This summer I worked as a children’s and youth ministry intern at Kearney First United Methodist Church in Kearney, NE and was a Summit Guide at The Summit Youth Academy at SC. After graduating from SC, I hope to get my masters in special education. From there I plan on becoming a deacon in the United Methodist Church to help equip local churches with resources to start special needs ministries. I’m very excited to work with the children at Grace UMC, because they ARE the church!
