Members of First United Methodist Church announce the appointment of their new pastor, the Rev. Lianne Turner.

Rev. Turner replaces the Rev. Joe Chamness, who accepted another appointment at the first of the year.

She took an indirect path to the ministry, first finishing a degree in sociology and English at Sam Houston State University in Huntsville and then completing a master’s degree in sociology at Texas A&M University.
