Martha Myre

Dr. Martha Myre is an ordained elder in the North Texas Conference of The United Methodist Church. She pastors the First United Methodist Church of Bowie, Texas. Her undergraduate education includes a Bachelor of Arts in Molecular Biology from Vanderbilt University, a Master of Theological Studies from Perkins School of Theology from SMU and a PhD in Religious Studies (with a concentration in Hebrew Bible) from SMU. Martha is constantly reading and learning and loves to teach Bible Studies, Wesleyan studies, Evangelism, and other things to children, youth, and adults. She basically loves facilitating a life of learning and discipleship in others. A life-long interest has been to open the door between academics and the church, so that the two sides of her brain can work together. The most common comment that she hears after her sermons is: “I’ve never thought about it that way before!”
