Our Pastor

Rev. Sara J. Wrona is a native of Western North Carolina, but grew up in New Kensington, PA. Before entering ministry, Sara worked in the human resource field and in church administration for a Presbyterian Church.  After discerning her call to ministry, Sara first served as an associate pastor for the Allegheny River Charge, then moved to the then three-point Kiski Charge to serve as a co-pastor.  Since 2014, Sara has served as solo pastor of the now two-point Kiski Charge.  Sara completed the Course of Study at the West Virginia Extension of the Course of Study School of Ohio in 2013.

Sara serves on the Conference Board of Ordained Ministry as the Licensing School Director and the Local Pastor Registrar.  She is currently the Vice-President of the Board of Directors of Olmsted Manor Retreat Center.  In the denomination, she has served with the UM Rural Advocates, the UM Appalachian Ministry Network, and the Rural Chaplains Association. Sara has a passion for justice and outreach ministries and has a heart for being in ministry with all of God’s children.

Sara and her husband, Paul, have been married for 33+ years and have three grown children: Rachel, who is married to Jimmy, and twins Katy and Sean. Sara loves her new role as Nanna to her grandson Cannon.
