Rev. Robin M. (Roderick) Bell finds great inspiration in being a District Superintendent. “The stories of what is happening in people, churches, communities — is often amazing. When things are a bit tough, learning to work through tension is a way to learn and grow for all of us. My personal vision statement is to create enthusiasm for the living and the learning of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and I’m grateful for this season of ministry.” Rev. Robin is a graduate of St. Paul School of Theology, has won various awards, and served on district and conference teams. She found it a profound privilege to serve as a jurisdictional conference delegate and then in 2012 as a general and jurisdictional conference delegate for Missouri. She looks forward to continuing to learn of people and places with the new alignment. She has a grown daughter who lives in Kansas City. While she cringes when people ask if she has any hobbies, still loves The Big Bang Theory and to be in water — pools, sprinklers, lakes, oceans — and trying to keep up with her beloved Bernadette, a two-year-old Rottweiler, and her cats, Penny and Sheldon.
