Meet our Staff

Rev. Brian Williams, Pastor    

My name is Brian Williams. My wife Tricia and I moved to Pella in 2021 and we are loving it here! I have been a pastor in the United Methodist Church since 2019. Tricia and I met at Simpson College (I know, don't say that too loud around here...) and then attended Duke University together for grad school. I am originally from Council Bluffs. We have a well-loved shih tzu mix named Hero. Let's see, what else? I enjoy playing the keyboard and guitar and writing music when I have the time. I am so excited to see what kind of holy trouble we can get into here at the UMC of Pella!

Diana Miller, Office Manager

Hi there. My name is Diana Miller and I am the church secretary at the United Methodist Church of Pella. I also drive a school bus for the Pella Community School District. My daily driving job is transporting special needs children. My family moved to Pella from Rockford, IL. I grew up in a small town in Kansas by the name of Whitewater. Since meeting my husband Gary, I have lived in Lawrence, KS, Cleveland, OH and IL. I have two sons: Cameron and Reid. We have one pet, an English Springer Spaniel named Kasey. I love to read, watch movies, garden, and take walks. Someday I hope to learn to play the piano. Music moves me.
