Rev. Amy Slater serves as pastor at South Gate UMC.
I grew up in St. Charles, Missouri, near St. Louis, where I developed a love for rivers, Cardinal baseball, and thin-crust pizza. I earned my Master of Divinity at Saint Paul School of Theology in 2008. While there I met and married Jeff Slater, originally from Wichita, Kansas. We share a mutual love of Jesus, theology, and Doctor Who, while continuously arguing over whether it’s called “pop” or “soda”. (It’s soda.) We were both ordained in the former Kansas West Annual Conference in 2011. We have two awesome boys: Ricky is almost 8 and Sam is 5.
I have served churches in St. Joseph, MO, Stafford, KS, and Alden, KS. For the past 6 years I have taken time off to be a stay-at-home-parent for our boys. But now I’m ready to get back to work. I am excited to return to active ministry and be a part of the fun and active life of South Gate UMC.
