Charlotte Carr

Pastor

Charlotte begins as the pastor of Spirit of Hope in July of 2019, following three years as Associate Pastor of Smoky Hill UMC across town. She is excited to be in ministry with the Spirit of Hope congregation, to imagine how the facility at the corner of Broadway and Mansfield can be a vital presence in the community, as well as to start the good work of envisioning and launching a new faith community in Englewood. Ministry in the twenty-first century requires a fresh perspective, and Charlotte looks forward to exploring what that might look like.

Having worked for years outside the church, Charlotte brings an experienced set of eyes to Spirit of Hope. Growing up in north Georgia, and becoming a United Methodist as a girl, Charlotte also brings an appreciation for the rich Wesleyan heritage of the UMC. She graduated from Wofford College in Sociology and History, then went on to get her Master’s in Theological Studies from Duke Divinity School, with recent additional studies at Iliff School of Theology in Denver. Charlotte worked for a time in the non-profit world assisting youth in navigating the criminal justice system. She also worked in public schools on substance abuse prevention, and spearheaded establishment of the first school-based health center in Wyoming.

Charlotte is the proud mother of two teenagers, and her husband is a United Methodist minister, as well. They are all glad to be living, working, and going to school in Englewood, and glad to have the opportunity to serve the community for years to come.
