Rev. Laura Byrch

Laura is an ordained elder in the United Methodist Church currently serving as Pastor of Community Engagement at Boone UMC.  As part of living out her call, Laura seeks to be a good neighbor in Bradford Trailer Park where she lives and co-leads a youth empowerment ministry with Latinx and white teens. In her previous work with the Networx program, Laura helped create spaces for authentic community and mutually supportive friendships that bridged the lines of race, culture, and income level. She brings to this project a curiosity for how church that is formed outside of the walls of “traditional”church can reshape our society and the institutional church as we know it.
