FAMU Welcomes Rev. Margaret Kartwe-Bradley as the New Director of the Campus Ministry

Rev. Margaret Kartwe-Bradley recently joined the Florida A&M University family as the director of the campus ministry.

“I have already fallen in love with the people here at FAMU, and the university is so blessed to have an awesome president,” said Rev. Kartwe-Bradley. “As an ordained elder of the United Methodist Church, the world is my perish. At this moment in time, this university, FAMU, and its whole community is my parish. I’m not just here for Methodist students, but all students and staff if and when needed.”

Rev. Kartwe-Bradley, former member of the Gainesville and Orlando Board of Ordained Ministry, comes to FAMU after serving as senior pastor at Ebenezer United Methodist Church, in Orlando, Fla., since 2003.

She has also served as senior pastor at Trinity United Methodist Church and Zion United Methodist Church, in Ocala, Fla. Prior to moving to Florida, Rev. Kartwe-Bradley served as a local pastor at the Ebenezer United Methodist Church in Madison, Ind. She has held leadership roles in the Conference Board of Global Ministries, the Board of Higher Education and Campus Ministry and the Justice Committee on African-American Comprehension Plan Task Force.

Rev. Kartwe-Bradley obtained her associate in business degree from the College of West Africa, in Monrovia Liberia, bachelor’s of arts from the American Baptist College and master’s of divinity from the Gammon Theological Seminary.
