Pastor Mark Porterfield - Information coming soon.



Sharla Mullen, Finance Secretary  Sharla Mullen was born in Slaton, Texas and raised on a cotton farm in Lubbock County.  Her career began as an accounting clerk with Aetna Insurance Company. She moved to San Antonio in October, 1988, where she served as Office Manager and assistant to the Director of Marriott Facilities Management at Wilford Hall at Lackland AFB and serving on the USAF Safety Committee. Sharla began her life at Canyon Lake UMC when her family joined the church in June of 1997.  In June of 2000 she began assisting as part time Finance Secretary to the Treasurer.  Seven short months later, she took on the additional role as Children's Program Director, where her two children, Chris and Kaci were active in several church programs. Serving on the Council of Children's Ministries with the Southwest Texas Conference four years, she brought valuable information from other Methodists churches back to the local church for program growth and revitalization of the children's programs. In June 2005, she substituted the role of Children's Program Director for Office Administrator, until January 2007, when she reverted back to her original part time position of Finance Secretary.

To say her tenure at Canyon Lake UMC has gone full circle would not be the full story.  The full story is that she has had the flexibility with her various positions within the church to fulfill her number one priority - her job of being the mother to the two best kids in the world.
