Featured Speaker

Rev. Jenna Morrison

Rev. Jenna Morrison currently serves as the Associate Pastor at First UMC Rockwall, where she has been on staff since 2013. Jenna attended camp at Bridgeport Camp and Conference Center for the first time in the third grade, where she quickly fell in love with the camp experience. She serves on the North Texas Conference curriculum team, and as a director of Junior High camps. In 2014, Jenna earned her M.Div from Perkins School of Theology at Southern Methodist University. She was ordained as an elder in the UMC in 2016; the sixth generation pastor in her family. Jenna has one dog-child, Hadley, an Australian Shepherd whom she dearly loves and who also drives her nuts. She believes that the most important thing that the Church is called to do today is to remind each and every person that together we are all children of God, worthy of love, dignity, and respect.
