Pastor Angela D. Lewis in her office

Angela D. Lewis is a native Oklahoman.  She accepted Christ in her early teens and accepted the call to preach in her late teens.  She received her undergraduate degree from Langton University in Oklahoma and one of her masters from the University of Akron in Ohio.

While she was in Akron, she not only publicly accepted her call to preach, but also changed denominations from Baptist to United Methodist.  In 1994, she heard the voice of God call her to pastor.  In 1996, she had the honor of being accepted and attending Princeton Theological Seminary in New Jersey.  Upon completed her Masters of Divinity at Princeton, she was appointed to her first church in Steubenville, Ohio in 1999.  She has served several churches in the East Ohio Conference of the United Methodist Church before moving to Des Moines, Iowa in 2011 where she has been appointed to serve the oldest Black church in the state.

She served as a trustee at Otterbein University.  Angela was very active in all of her communities where she served her churches.  Before coming to Iowa, she served on the East Ohio Board of Ordained Ministry.  She served on other district and conference level committees.  She is currently serving on the Committee of Religion and Race here in the Iowa Conference.

I thank God for all the things I’ve accomplished, but like Paul in Philippians 3:7 “   what things were gained to me, these I have counted loss for Christ.”  He is the Love of my life and has afforded me everything I have today.
