Dianne Garcia

Pastor of Family Ministry

Dianne Garcia grew up on the East Coast and moved to Texas to teach math on the border over 15 years ago. Although she didn't grow up attending church, in the valley she became involved in a Mennonite church and wanted to stay close to a Mennonite community when she moved north to San Antonio. She became a member of SAMC about five years ago, serving the church through teaching Sunday school, revitalizing the gardens, and helping to plan the annual retreat. Dianne heard her call to ministry through working closely with immigrant families in a small gardening business that grew out of her volunteer work at the church. In becoming deeply connected to those families, she realized that she wanted to live a life of service and compassion and to be deeply connected to this one community and place. She also found that she could draw on her own experience of healing from trauma and struggle in her life to better understand and support others. She continues to engage in that healing process and is constantly trying to turn the challenges and victories of that journey into a gift to offer others who are struggling. She feels blessed and honored every day to be a part of the SAMC community and to be given the opportunity to serve families in this way. Dianne lives with her incredible, brilliant and super-supportive husband, Nick and their two precious children (and three big dogs) in what sometimes feels like a very small space a few blocks from the church in this city, which is the only place she will now ever call home.
