Rev. Dr. Marty Dunbar

Senior Pastor

Senior Pastor Dr. Marty Dunbar came to John Wesley in July of 2015. His 30 years in local church ministry include 8 years at Marvin MC in Tyler, Texas, and 11 years at White’s Chapel MC in Southlake, Texas.

After graduating from Southlake Carroll High School, Marty received a scholarship to play football for Baylor University, where he was the starting center. He lettered in football and track and received his degree in Radio, TV, and Film from Baylor, then followed his call into the ordained ministry by receiving his Masters of Divinity at Brite Divinity School at TCU. He received his Doctor of Ministry degree from Graduate Theological Foundation in May of 2013, and has been ordained in the United Methodist Church since 2002.

He is the author of a devotional book titled STOPS: 40 Encounters to the Cross. Marty loves to play golf, watch movies, and build the Kingdom of God through growing the local church. His greatest witness is his marriage and his children. Marty lives in the Klein area with his wife, Jami, a Registered Nurse. They have three children: Jillian (Nick), Noah, and Grayson.

Rev. Trish Woodruff

Reach Pastor

The Reverend Trish Woodruff joined the JWMC pastoral staff in 2022, and comes to us from Lakewood MC, where she served as the Pastor of Missions and Outreach. Trish previously served for two years as an Associate Pastor at Cornerstone UMC in Houston in discipleship, missions, care ministries, and stewardship. Trish is a graduate of Asbury Theological Seminary in Kentucky with a Masters of Divinity, and Texas A&M University with a Bachelors of Business Administration.

Trish serves several ministries in Houston, including the Children’s Activity Center in the Bellaire area, Neighbors in Action (Port of Houston), and Rescue Houston. Trish loves the outdoors, hiking, kayaking, and working in her yard. God has given her a love for people and a love for Jesus. She feels like ministry as a vocation is living in the sweet spot. Trish considers her biggest blessing to be her family.
