Rev. Donna J. Minarik
Rev. Donna Minarik is an ordained elder in the United Methodist Church with over 20 years of experience leading congregations. However, each and every day in ministry is a fresh new gift that holds many surprises, with God at the center of them all! She invites you to be our guest at worship at 9:30am each Sunday, and meet the wonderful people here at Mason First UMC, and explore for yourself the surprises that faith can bring.
Donna holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Ohio Dominican University, as well as a Master of Divinity degree from Methodist Theological School in Ohio. She is married to Rev. Carman Minarik, also a pastor, and their son Warren and his wife Emily bring joy to their lives, as well as an adorable grandson, Wyatt. They also have a six pound mutt named Leah who persistently reminds them to play every day.
In her spare time, Donna enjoys traveling and learning about various cultures and customs, cooking - especially experimenting with foods from cultures that are not her own, reading historical fiction, and, to stay connected to her farming roots, she can’t resist poking around in the dirt.
