Chessey Brenton

Director of Children’s Education & Family Ministry

MUMC has been my church home since I was a little girl. My faith journey at MUMC has included participation in Sunday School, Youth Group & Choir, the Ancient-New Worship Service, and Leadership Board.

I have a Bachelor of Science degree from Missouri State University, a Master of Arts in teaching from Lindenwood University, and a Master of Arts in zoology from Miami University of Ohio. This opportunity connects all of my passions: education, science, and ministry. I love having the opportunity to serve God and the families of Manchester UMC through this ministry.  God has wonderful plans for our church and I cannot wait to be a part of the excitement.  My family loves meeting members, visitors, and community members, so I look forward to seeing you soon here at Manchester UMC.
