Pastor: Lynn Munson
I have served in ministry in the United Methodist Church for the past
14 years and love local church ministry. Serving alongside our
congregation in ministry, as well as educating and encouraging people
in their faith in Christ is a joy beyond expression! My Bachelors
degree is in Psychology from Vanguard University in Costa Mesa, CA and
I received my Masters of Divinity at Claremont School of Theology. I
have 3 grown children, my son Josh and daughter Rebekah work and live
in Albequerque, New Mexico and my youngest daughter, Rachel works at
and attends Orange Coast College. I am an avid road cyclist and have
a lot of fun with my dog Lilo.

teaching them the Word of God and about the love God has for them all.
I am married to Kevin and have two children, Sara and Matt, one
son-in-law, Jim, and two granddaughters, Maggie and Alicia. In my

Director, Yorba Linda United Methodist Preschool: Jodi Hammond
I have worked in the field of Early Childhood Education
for 9 years and have enjoyed it tremendously. I have a certificate in Early
Childhood Education as well as my Bachelor's Degree in Human Services. My
husband , Jeff, and I live in Rancho Santa Margarita with our daughter
Kayley, who was born this past April. We enjoy traveling and spending as
much time as we can at the river. It is my goal to partner with the staff
and the families of the preschool to provide quality Christian education and
development opportunities that will honor our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
I am very excited to be part of a ministry where we can share the word of
God with our young ones and their families and create an environment where
children can develop spiritually, emotionally and socially.
