Rev. Lynn Lindsey, a retired staff member at Pulaski Heights United Methodist Church, recently was elected to the United Methodist Foundation of Arkansas Board of Directors. The Foundation manages $164 million in endowment funds and other charitable assets that benefit local churches and United Methodist ministries.
“A major key to our success at creating endowments to benefit United Methodist ministries in Arkansas is an active, engaged board of directors,” said The Honorable Beth Deere, UMFA Board Chair. “Members like Lynn provide leadership that strengthens our United Methodist connection.”
Lynn served as Director of Children’s Ministry, Director of Evangelism and New Member Ministries, Executive Pastor, and Director of the Pulaski Heights UMC Foundation. She attended Hendrix College and graduated from the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville. Lynn completed theological classes at Perkins School of Theology in Dallas and was ordained as a deacon. She is married to Wayne Lindsey and together they have a blended family of six children.
UMFA is one of the largest United Methodist Foundations in the country. Founded in 1963, the Foundation is responsible for over 800 funds that support United Methodist ministries.
