Lindsay Smith joined the pastoral team at St. Stephen’s in 2015 as Minister of Music. Before coming to St. Stephen’s, she served as choir director at Dayton FUMC for five years. During that time, she earned her Masters of Sacred Music from Perkins School of Theology at SMU, where she graduated with honors in 2014. She was ordained a Deacon in full connection in the Texas Annual Conference in 2017, and now serves as St. Stephen’s Pastor of Music and Worship.

Lindsay is a member of the Hymn Society of the United States and Canada, and believes that the Holy Spirit uses music to heal and minister to our souls. In her spare time, she writes hymn texts and tunes. She is also a member of the Houston Chorister’s Guild Board, and serves on the Texas Annual Conference Worship Planning Team.

Lindsay and her husband, Justin, have two beautiful daughters who bring smiles to the faces of all who meet them. Lindsay and her family enjoy serving alongside the wonderful people of St. Stephen’s UMC!
