Hope United Methodist Church
Angie Dornisch is a charismatic leader with a passion for people. She and her husband Russ moved to Billings from Denver after she was appointed to be the new pastor of Hope United Methodist in July of 2019.
Angie is an ordained elder in the United Methodist Church and received her Master of Divinity degree from Denver Seminary in 2016. Prior to pursuing her seminary degree, she attended the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley, Colorado.
With a passion for creating and nurturing local church communities, Angie has over a decade of experience working in several churches and non-profits throughout Colorado. In addition to work with church communities, Angie has been fortunate enough to serve in over twenty-five mission trips worldwide, including the year-long World Race program in 2011. During her year on the World Race, she served in orphanages, built houses, and helped local congregations in countries like the Philippines, Guatemala, and Uganda. While attending Denver Seminary, Angie became the resident program director at a local non-profit, Streets Hope, which is a safe house for women coming out of sex trafficking.
Angie believes in the importance of giving back to the community. She is a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) for three children in the foster care system in Billings and she also serves on the executive board of Rainbow Coffeehouse, a weekly drop-in center for LGBTQ+ youth in the Billings community. When she isn’t working, Angie loves hiking, reading, traveling, working out, and spending time with her husband, Russ, and their two dogs – Brody and Cooper.
