Pastor Courtnie Morton grew up in Caldwell, Ohio. In high school, she began to feel a call to ministry to shepherd churches to grow closer to God and one another. She became licensed as a Local Pastor in 2012 and served as an interim pastor to Derwent UMC, Bethlehem UMC, and Byesville Trinity UMC as she finished her undergraduate degree. Pastor Courtnie graduated from Muskingum University in 2013 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Humanities: Art, Religion, Theatre, and Speech Communication with a minor in Psychology. She then served Sugar Grove UMC. Pastor Courtnie is continuing her studies through the Course of Study Program of the UMC.
Some of Pastor Courtnie’s favorite aspects of ministry are visiting, caring for others, music, and growing in grace and faith with each other through study and fellowship. Her passion in ministry is to provide a grace-filled atmosphere, so all people can come to know the love and grace of God, that they are valued, and have a home in the Body of Christ.
Pastor Courtnie and her family live in the Columbus area. They enjoy being in a community of faith, spending time with their family, traveling, and enjoying the outdoors!
