Our Pastor

Rev. Mary Wilder Cartwright has been pastor of Nashville United Methodist Church since July 2013.  She is passionate about helping the church “leave the building” — leading people to experience God’s presence in worship and take God’s presence out into the world.

Called into ministry with the conviction that God equips us to that which God calls us, Pastor Mary is passionate about helping people hear the voice of God in their lives and encouraging them to respond.  “Come and see” is Jesus’ invitation to us (John 1:39), and the next thing you know we’re following where Jesus leads!

Pastor Mary and her husband Michael both attended Duke Divinity School; he is also an ordained elder within the Indiana Annual Conference and is currently on appointment to the University of Indianapolis, where he serves as Vice-President for Mission.

Together Mary and Michael have four children who range in age between 23-30 years—Hannah, Erin, Jamie, and Bethany. Just like most parents they love to talk about their kids so just ask!
