The Calling: Meet Reverend Lanita Monroe

Following the call from part time church secretary to becoming a Senior Pastor.

All across the Upper Cumberland, there are everyday people who are lead to do more than everyday things.

Reverend Lanita Monroe grew up in Nashville, the youngest of three girls, to a pastor father and a Christian educating mother. Due to her father’s career, church was like a second home to her, and if the doors were open, she and her family were there. At first, she never thought she would join the clergy because of how shy and scared she was, and due to the fact that she was more than happy working behind the scenes as a part time church secretary. But much like others before her, she felt and pursued the call to ministry with the support of her children. She joins Denna Hornby to share her experiences in ministry that led her to becoming Senior Pastor of Fairfield Glade United Methodist Church.
