Tiffany Danna is an ordained elder who brings with her a passion for ministry and decades of ministerial experience. She began serving as pastor at First United Methodist of Boyd in 2023.
Tiffany grew up on a ranch in Oklahoma. She earned her Bachelor's of Arts Degree (English) from the University of Southern Mississippi. She earned her Master's of Divinity Degree from Brite Divinity School. During seminary, she was awarded the Joey Jeter Homiletics (Preaching) Book Award. Her home-spun, narrative-style sermons often bring a laugh or a tear, but always inspire thoughtful reflection and love in action.
Tiffany has served in a variety of church and community settings that inform her ministry. Her experience in serving a cross-denominational appointment fuels her interest in working with other faith organizations to better serve the community. Her years as a hospice chaplain inform her pastoral care skills and passion for health ministries. Her experiences as a children and youth pastor have led her to be an advocate for people of all ages. Her experiences as a senior pastor have given her skills for organizing the church for the mission of making disciples for the transformation of the world. She has a Christ-driven passion for mission with the least of these (as opposed to ministry "for" or "to" the least of these).
Tiffany and her husband, Joe, have been married for 29 years. Joe is a retired school administrator who enjoys playing golf and officiating sporting events. He serves on various boards in the Central Texas Conference.
The Dannas are proud of their daughter, Beth and her husband, Christian. Joe and Tiffany enjoy spoiling their young granddaughters, McKinnleigh and Madi.
