Meet our Staff …

Cathy Partridge, Pastor …

One thing you will quickly learn about Cathy is that she is passionate about her faith, leading others in their faith journey, her family, and the community.  Cathy joined Caddo Mills United Methodist Church as the pastor in November 2017, after having served as the lead pastor for over two years at Christ United Methodist Church in Princeton, which was a new church start.  Prior to Princeton, Cathy served for six years at First United Methodist Church in Frisco as an Associate Pastor and then Executive Associate Pastor; and two years prior to that at First United Methodist Church Royse City as an Associate Pastor.  Yes, you can see that she has been in ministry with various responsibilities and contexts for over ten years. She describes herself as a “people person” and is passionate about missions and ministries that impact the way people live, learn,
lead and love.  Therefore, the opportunity to meet you  is, well “super exciting” in her words.
 
Cathy is a Texas native who grew up in Royse City and graduated from high school there. Her college career is long and diverse, having attended courses at Texas A&M Commerce, Whatcom Community College, and Liberty University. Cathy completed her Course of Study classes at Perkins School of Theology in July 2014. Though she isn’t carrying around textbooks anymore, she continues to learn and grow both mentally and spiritually.
Outside of the walls of the Church, Cathy has served for a long time in the Dallas Emmaus and Chrysalis Community, in addition to serving on the leadership team for the Clergy Women of the North Texas Conference, Chair of the Fellowship of Local Pastors for the North Texas Conference, the Board of Ordained Ministry and on numerous Disaster Response teams.  She truly believes the connection between the local church​ and the broader mission field is intertwined, interdependent, and life giving. Cathy and her husband Brad have two sons, Mitch Murray and Lance Partridge, and a precious grandson, Isaac. They also have a daughter, Heather and her husband Jimmie, and two grandchildren, Shaun and Jaiden.  And we can’t fail to mention their beautiful and loving fur baby, Annie, a rescued Goldendoodle.  Cathy and Brad are both very active, enjoy attending sporting events, long walks, bike riding, golfing, remodeling, crafting and just about anything else that keeps them on the move. ​Alongside you, Cathy look forward to loving and caring for the people of Caddo Mills through teaching, preaching, missions, and ministry.

My name is Brenda Williams. I have been married to my husband Joel for over 30 years. God has blessed us with 8 children and 11 grandchildren. I have been serving the youth in Caddo Mills for over 20 years in many different areas: coaching soccer and softball, team mom and room mom many times over, being a Cub Scout and Girl Scout leader as well as a family stylist to many. I have always enjoyed working with children and am very thankful for God blessing me with so many opportunities to do so. I consider it both an honor and a blessing to lead our children in a fun filled environment that teaches of God’s unconditional love and his amazing grace!
