Alice Fowler was born into a pastor’s family and made her first commitment to the Lord at age five at a church camp in New Jersey. She’s lived in many different states and many different parsonages ever since. Alice graduated from Nebraska Wesleyan University with a Bachelor of Science in Music Education. When her husband, David, became a United Methodist pastor, Alice continued living in parsonages and serving the church as she raised their three children, Elissa, Ethan and Grant. She taught music in public schools in Kentucky and Missouri but in 2006 was surprised by God’s call to start seminary. Alice graduated from Asbury Theological Seminary in 2011 and was ordained as a United Methodist elder in 2014. To date, she has served the church in a variety of roles throughout her life, such as five-year-old vocal soloist, Sunday School teacher and UMW kitchen helper. She's been a youth group leader, written and directed Christmas pageants, started a GED program, sang in choirs, played the piano, and preached the Gospel. She has served two congregations in Missouri: Van Buren and Trinity (Bloomfield). For the past three years, Alice has been serving as the Southwest District Superintendent. She loves serving the church, consuming chocolate and spending time with family — not necessarily in that order!
