Leon Morrow, Pastor

My wife, Yvette, and I love the Lord and we love this church family.  We want you to know that you will be welcomed in our congregation.  If you choose to join our services we pray that you will experience God’s presence and the warmth and love of our congregation.  Before I was called into ministry I worked for the NC Prison System—for many of those years I was a staff psychologist.  I am thrilled to be a UMC minister; I received my first appointment in 2002 and I am an ordained elder.

Carol Hartis, Music Director

For the past 40 years, my greatest joy in music has been helping church musicians make a joyful noise.  From playing piano since age 5, to teaching choral music in public schools for 30 years, music has surrounded  my life. My other great joy is my family.  My children Adam, Lindsay and my dear husband of 28 years, Randy, have always participated in and supported me in all my musical endeavors. I give all the glory to God.  I love my Hickory Grove UMC family and my prayer is for you too, "to make a joyful noise"!


Donna Edwards, Administrative Assistant

For some time I have wanted to do more to be of service.  Through a friend at Hickory Grove UMC, I found an opportunity in the role of Administrative Assistant.  My goal is to participate in the sharing of information and to offer assistance to the office and congregation.  I have been blessed with a wonderful family that includes my husband, Ceasar, and our Yorkie, Mandy.  As I learn more about Hickory Grove UMC, I’m looking forward to the fellowship of service with this lovely congregation.
