Honoring Excellence in Ministry: Charlotte Croll

Charlotte Croll was recognized for her Excellence in Ministry by her church, Ginter Park United Methodist. Charlotte was the wife of a United Methodist pastor for 57 years, in a time when the expectation was that she would do whatever needed doing in his church.  Trained as a teacher, she taught in elementary schools for years, changing jobs frequently because of the Methodist practice of moving pastors often.  Her last 13 years of teaching were at Luther Memorial School in Richmond.  She regularly goes on mission trips, having travelled to Russia, Brazil, the Redbird Missionary Conference in Kentucky, and the Oregon Conference UMC to learn about Native Americans.  Her favorite was two weeks in Louisiana at the distribution center for United Methodist Committee on Relief, where volunteers packed thousands of kits with needed items to be sent across the world.
