Rev. Hannah Terry
Pastor of FAM
Born and raised in upstate New York, Hannah received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication from Roberts Wesleyan College and Master of Divinity degree from Duke University. She holds certification in Forming Missional Communities from The Academy for Missional Wisdom. As an ordained deacon, she serves alongside the church and the world as friend, neighbor, and visionary. Hannah discerned with the people of Westbury UMC that southwest Houston needs trust-building and holy friendships for the purpose of personal wholeness, communal healing, and systemic change through love of God and neighbor. She lives in FAM's intentional Christian community and builds bridges to cultivate communities of prayer and action among refugees, immigrants, and local Houstonians. She currently serves as Chair of the Social Principles Implementation in Ministry Committee for the Texas Annual Conference. Hannah loves to cook and share the table with family and friends. She and her dog Grace enjoy exploring Houston and making trips to Lake Livingston.

Director of Holy Friendships
Kristy was born in St. Louis, Missouri, and moved to Houston, TX, when she was 6 months old! Growing up on the west side of Houston, she and her family attended Memorial Drive United Methodist Church. She later attended and graduated from Houston Baptist University with a B.B.A. in Business Administration and Marketing.
Kristy began her career in community ministry at the Christian Community Service Center in 1998. Working with their job ministry, she made friends with people who had immigrated to the United States from all over the world and who loved and celebrated the goodness of our country. Through this experience, Kristy developed a passion to experience God in new ways and to be in relationship with and learn from people of different cultures. Several mission trips later, Kristy was led to work with Memorial Drive United Methodist Church where she directed International mission work and local outreach efforts until 2012.
Kristy married her husband, Hugh, in 2009 and they have two sons, Thomas and Townes. Kristy enjoys contemplative prayer, running and sharing meals with friends. The Elmore family cherishes simple, unplanned time together, and they love visiting farmers markets, fly fishing, hiking, camping and most recently, floating on lazy rivers!
Bucket list includes... traveling the United States in an Airstream trailer, introducing my family to Guatemala, visiting Detroit, Michigan, attending a Cubs game, spending a week on retreat at St. Andrew's Abbey
Greatest memory from my youth... Long conversations with family around the dinner table.
