Rev. Siobhan Sargent
Rev. Siobhan Sargent is newly appointed to the position of Senior Pastor here at Memorial United Methodist Church. Prior to moving to White Plains, Rev. Sargent served as the Associate Pastor of the Church of St. Paul and St. Andrew in Manhattan. Over the last seven years she has worked with children and youth while also developing ministry with students at Columbia University and Morningside Heights. Rev. Sargent's gifts rest in developing leaders within the church community. She is committed to a fully inclusive church where all ages, races, sexual orientations, gender expressions and economic circumstances are lifted up and affirmed as not only children of God but also as vitally integral to the Body of Christ. With a heart for social justice, Rev. Sargent believes that the "Good News" of the Gospel is found in sharing Jesus' radical message of love with the least, the lost and the marginalized. She hopes that through the witness and action of Memorial UMC all might come to know the peace and love of Jesus Christ.
