Rev. Esther Rodriguez
Pastor Esther is a native of Puerto Rico living in Florida since childhood. Her call to ministry is founded and propelled by her experience of God’s grace. “It’s all about grace” she often says. She is passionate about worship, missions, reaching the marginalized of society and those who have left church due to bad experiences. She loves reading, movies, her dog and cat, and a good cup of cafe con leche.

We knew we wanted to retire in Florida when Eddy retired from the military in 1982. Some of the Morgan family were already here in Fort Myers so we had our house built a few blocks from Eddy’s brother and we moved right in. Our boys were involved in Boy Scouts at our last duty station. We were delighted to know that Tice UMC had a very active troop. I had been raised in a Methodist church from birth so the boys joined the Boy Scout troop and we got involved in the church. The week before I turned 62 the business where I worked was sold they moved out of state. At the same time Tice UMC was looking for a part time secretary. I did not have many computer skills but I offered to work for free for two weeks to see if I could really do it. Under the guidance or our then pastor, Michael Sims, I felt like I was capable of learning what I needed to do. I was hired in 2005 and have been working here three hours a day, five days a week and I love it!
