New pastor hoping to build community at Stephens City UMC

STEPHENS CITY — After moving to the area from more rural settings, the Rev. Bertina J. H. Westley is excited to be pastor at Stephens City United Methodist Church.

Though born and raised in the South Side of Chicago, Westley has spent most of her ministry so far in rural Virginia areas, first the Eastern Shore district from June 2016 to June 2018 and then the York River district from July 2018 until she came here in September.
