Bonnie Elizabeth Riley
A very warm welcome to our new Youth Ministry and Adult Discipleship Director, Bonnie Riley!
Originally from Oklahoma, Bonnie grew up in Oklahoma City, where she met her husband, Sean. Bonnie worked as surgery tech while serving as a youth volunteer alongside Sean at Grace UMC and Church of the Servant UMC. When the Army Reserves activated Sean to Ft. Jackson, Bonnie and their two boys followed. While here in Columbia, the Riley’s added Lydia to their family. After attending Northeast United Methodist Church, Bonnie began to work as the Children’s director and then youth director 6 years ago.
Bonnie loves sharing her stories of how God has done amazing things in her life and the life of others. Her heart for missions has led her to serve on several mission teams, including leading two teams to Nakalanda, Uganda. If she isn’t watching her kids do their sports, she would love to be taking pictures or traveling. She loves a good storm, diet Dr. Pepper, and chocolate.
