Rev. Katie Meek is a United Methodist Missionary serving in Sierra Leone. Originally from Central Texas, she served churches as Pastor before moving to Sierra Leone in November 2017. This site is a place to connect with Katie as she reflects on what it means to be a missionary in an era when the world together is writing a new story of global kinship.
The core of Katie’s work is as a lecturer at the Bishop Wenner School of Theology, United Methodist University Sierra Leone. At BWST, she teaches courses in theology such as Homiletics (The Art of Preaching), Christian History, Wesleyan Theology, and Congregational Care. Having arrived in Sierra Leone during the School of Theology’s first semester in 2017, Rev. Meek is incredibly proud to be among the first faculty members in the first school of the UMUSL. You can read more about the Bishop’s speech about United Methodist University’s vision here and photos from the official UMUSL here.
In addition to her work as lecturer, Katie travels the country preaching, volunteering for children’s camp, and participating in United Methodist programs. She is also a member of the UM Prison Ministry where she is a part of the team offering care inside the Juvenile Correction Center in Freetown.
