Reverend Marjorie Elaine Nunes is the Pastor of Summerfield United Methodist Church in Bridgeport, Connecticut. Rev. Nunes emphatically states, “I am excited and truly blessed to be called to serve the people of God!” Before her appointment to Summerfield UMC she was both the Youth Pastor and then the Associate Pastor at Vanderveer Park United Methodist Church in Brooklyn, New York, where she served for two years. She also served at John Wesley United Methodist Church in Brooklyn, New York, first as a student minister and then as assistant to the Pastor.
Before entering full time ministry Rev. Nunes was Vice President/CFO of Professional Software Systems, Inc., where she worked for sixteen and half years. Through God’s grace and through hard work she was able to establish a successful career in the area of Client Services in that company and subsequently became a partner. During that time she responded to the call to the ordained ministry after a few years of deliberate prayer and discernment.
