Lee Ann Clemons
Director of Children's /Discipleship Ministries
Lee Ann Clemons has quite a varied background with FUMC McAllen, beginning when her parents joined this church in 1967 after moving to McAllen. She had the privilege of growing up with this church family, attending Sunday School and Vacation Bible School here as a child and going to MYF and on choir trips as a teen. Following her completion of a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education at UT Austin and a short time in Houston, she and her husband, Gary, moved back to McAllen and chose to call FUMC home for their growing family including three children, Jeremy, Nicole and Shay. During her children’s younger years she enjoyed volunteering in their church activities and establishing strong friendships with the young adult Sunday School class. In recent years, she has been on staff at First Church as a Day School teacher, Director of Infant and Toddler Ministries and secretary. At this time she is Director of Children’s and Discipleship Ministry.
I hope through my ministry at FUMC McAllen to encourage others to seek God and His purposes for their lives and to encourage them in opportunities for learning and growth in Biblical knowledge, the Christian tradition, and United Methodism. I hope to foster in others a deeper understanding of Christian love, a desire to reach out to those in need and an openness to share their faith experiences.
