Meet the Pastor

Rev. Staci Plonsky, a native Floridian, comes from the Melbourne, Florida area.  She  previously served in United Methodist churches as a youth director, then a life enrichment director, and most recently working as outreach/missions director. (She also was a childbirth educator and doula for 9 years!)

Pastor Staci is a recent graduate of Iliff School of Theology in Denver, Colorado, where she studied under their “Journey” hybrid distance/in person program. She earned her Master of Divinity degree with distinction in 2022 and is eager to lead Edgewater United Methodist Church. Some of her gifts include creativity, compassion, and teaching.

Pastor Staci married her husband, Terry, in 2000. He is an electrical engineer of heavy-lift rockets. Together, they have three children: Grace, 19; A.J.; 16; Juliette, 12. Their family loves animals and currently raises 1 horse, 2 hens, 2 giant dogs, and 3 cats (not in the parsonage, don’t worry!)

Pastor Staci’s favorite Scripture verse is Romans 8:38-39:

For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Pastor Staci looks forward to meeting you and is just a phone call or email away: pastor@edgewaterunitedmethodist.org
