Rev. Dr. Dara Cobb Lewis, the daughter of Disciple church planters, grew up and received her spiritual formation in South Carolina. When she returns June 1, she will be regional minister.
“I am honored to be called to serve the Church in South Carolina,” Lewis said. “It feels like a homecoming. It is where I first received my call to ministry as a youth and now I can bring my experience back to the region that nurtured me.”
Lewis has deep roots in Disciples ministry, from being a CYF regional president to earning her masters of divinity from Lexington Theological Seminary in 2003. Currently a member of Christmount and Global Ministries boards, she is also a Bethany Fellow Leader and served as a mission co-worker in Botswana.
Since 2011, she has been a pastoral counselor in North Carolina but she has congregational experience as lead and associate pastor in North Carolina, Missouri and Maryland and a student minister in Kentucky.
Rev. Dr. Cobb Lewis is married to Michael Lewis. Together they have five children.
