Our Pastor is Rev. Lani Rousseau. Lani (a Hawaiian name pronounced “Lonnie”) heard the call of God on her life while an active member of Bear Creek United Methodist in west Houston. Prior to coming to Perritte in 2014, she served in the greater Houston area at First UMC, Houston ; Bear Creek UMC ; First UMC, Katy; and First UMC, Sealy. She has a Bachelor’s degree from the University of St. Thomas in Houston and a Master of Divinity from Perkin’s School of Theology at SMU.
Pastor Lani currently serves on the Texas Annual Conference Missions Committee and visited the ZOE ministry in Kenya in February 2015. She also serves as a member of the East district committee of ordained ministry. She has served on the Board of Directors of U.M. ARMY, the Sealy Christian Food Pantry, and the Sealy YMCA.
You may find her on Tuesdays during the lunch hour at the public library practicing her Spanish!
In her down time, Lani enjoys antiquing, visiting with friends, spending time with her family, and hanging out with three tiny Yorkies named Jet, Edsel, and Curly. Lani and her husband Don have been married for 28 years. They have four children and four grandchildren.
