Pastors Greeting

Introduction to Parker UMC

Brothers, Sisters, Friends of Parker UMC.

My name is Dulce Vargas. I am blessed to be your Pastor. I am looking forward to working with you in ministry.

A little about me, I was born and raised in San Luis Rio Colorado, Sonora, Mex. A little town that is on the border with San Luis, AZ. My family and relatives live there. My hobbies are drawing, art crafts and traveling.

About my studies, I have a Bachelor of International Trade and a Bachelor of Theology from Mexico. Last summer, I graduated from Basic Course for Local Pastors and I will study Advanced Courses on this summer at Perkins School of Theology.

About my ministry, I have worked for nine years as a pastor. I was ordained as an elder in the Methodist Church of Mexico in 2011. I served as a member the National Team of Christian Education for the Methodist Church in Mexico for seven years.

 My ministry has been focused in teaching, discipleship, Bible studies, small groups, methodism studies and pastoral care. Also, as supportive of the youth, children and women ministries. I have been working with Interfaith and community connections. In Tucson, I was involved with multi-ethnic ministries and immigration justice ministries.

Thanks for give me the opportunity to be in ministry with you at Parker.

My prayers and thoughts with you,

Rev. Dulce Vargas
