Donna Porter


Donna was born and raised in California and moved to Virginia in 1983. She grew up attending University Christian Church in Berkeley, Calif. Donna is married and has three grown children, two beautiful grandchildren and five small dogs. She has fun attending several Small Groups at Floris UMCa great way to meet people!

Donna began working at Floris UMC in 1989 when it was just her, the pastor and the choir director on staff, and she did everything but clean the windows! It has been a thrill for her to watch this small church on the corner grow into such a large presence that affects many areas in this community. She now reports to the director of serve ministries, and her job consists of supporting all local, community and worldwide
 Serve Ministries. 

First Job: Working as a receptionist for a construction company in California 

Favorite Bible Verse: Romans 8:38-39 (Donna found this scripture in her mother’s wallet the day she passed away and has kept it with her ever since.) 

Idea of a perfect day: Laughing with her grandchildren, family and good friends 

Most people don't know this about Donna: She's really tall—being short is just an illusion! 

Most interesting vacation: Visiting North Africa in the 1970s.
