Rev. Mary Rodgers-Weaver was appointed to serve as Lead Pastor of Concord Trinity UMC in July 2020. Originally from IL, she felt called to ordained ministry following a career as a Physical Therapist and after serving in several volunteer roles at her local UMC in Chesterfield, MO. She graduated in 2016 with her Master of Divinity from Candler School of Theology at Emory University in Atlanta, GA, and was appointed to serve at Liberty UMC on the Royal's side of the state before being appointed to Cardinal's nation, (but she is truly a diehard Cub's fan!). Pastor Mary has a daughter attending Mizzou and a daughter who is attending Truman State and they are her pride and joy. She has a heart for evangelism and missions and is honored to work alongside the ministries of CTUMC to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

Professionally, she earned a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Central Methodist University and has several masters courses in Special Education, Biblical Studies, and Pastoral Care.  Samantha has a Masters in Human Development and Family Sciences with an emphasis in Youth Development from MIZZOU!  She takes great joy in recognizing the unique combination of gifts and strengths each of us have to love God and love others, regardless of age or any other label.
