Rev. Colleen Haley and her husband, Bill, will be joining the First United Methodist Church family on July 1, 2012. They have served churches in Columbus, Fredericksburg, and Austin, and are thrilled to be returning to the heart of the Hill Country to serve in Mason.
Bill and Colleen have been married for 35 years. They have three children. Their oldest son, Will, is married to Brittany, and they have the Haley’s only grandchild, Brooklyn, who is 8 months old. Their second son, Houston, is married to Angela. Their youngest is the only girl, Lynden. Will and Lynden both live in the Houston area. Will works as a pest control operator with Colleen’s brother in their family-owned business, and Lynden is a school teacher in a private Christian school. Their son, Houston, lives in Pensacola, FL, where he received his wings as an Electronic Weapons Officer in the United States Air Force. All of them (daughters-in-law included) graduated from Texas A&M.
Colleen has served as an associate pastor in the Southwest Texas Conference for 13 years. Before that, she taught English and worked as a school counselor and administrator in the Columbus Independent School District. She enjoys music, cooking, and working in the yard - when it’s not too hot!
Bill is an independent real estate appraiser and broker, serving mostly commercial banks from the Hill Country to Houston and points in between. He enjoys the outdoors—hunting, fishing, sailing, jeeping, motorcycling and working the land.
Bill and Colleen are looking forward to a fruitful ministry in Mason, and are grateful to God for sending them here.
