Young Pastor's Fresh Ideas (UMTV)

As a young pastor and mother, the Rev. Stephanie Price has put a lot of thought into where the food on her table comes from. Price started a partnership between local farmers and United Methodist churches. She believes that spiritual and physical fitness go hand in hand. Farmers can sell their produce through churches and members get to know the people who grow the food their families eat. These co-ops builds community inside and outside the church. “We’re building a bridge. We’re closing that gap between people that are outside of our walls and the people that are within them,” says Price.
