District Office Staff
Butler District Administrative Assistant


I am the voice on the other end of the phone when calling the Butler District Office. I have been a life long member of Unionville United Methodist Church, in the Butler District. My love for the church has directed me to ministry in many areas. Some of those areas are: Teaching Sunday School teacher for 18 years VBS coordinator/teacher Confirmation Class teacher for 6 years Areas of leadership Lay Leader Sunday School Superintendent Liturgist Outreach Committee Nurture Committee Pastor Parish Committee Visitation Youth Leader Worship Team Coordinator I have also served areas on the district and conference levels. Vital Congregations-Faithful Disciples District Lay Ministry Team Certified Lay Speaker District Board on Ordained Ministry Conference Center Staff I am a wife and mother. I married my soul mate, Bill, on July 15, 1978. We have two grown children. Our son, Christopher, now follows in a fourth generation love for the Castor family......railroad life. He works for Norfolk Southern Railroad, as does his father. Our daughter, JossLynn, is the Director of Marketing and Human Resources at HAP (Help A Person) Enterprises, Hopewell, PA. She is now enrolled in the Master's of Science in Organized Leadership at Geneva College. I have served as the Butler District secretary/administrative assistant since 1994. I have now had the pleasure of assisting three District Superintendents. In 2005, my work took on a new role, as I became the Executive Secretary to the Cabinet, to help coordinate our District Offices. We have seen the benefits of that shared ministry many times over. My personal mission statement: To be a disciple for Jesus Christ. To be a leader -- and to know when to follow. To be a “servant” for Christ to those who call upon me to do His work. I have always considered my work in the district a ministry, not just a job. I love this work – and the people of the United Methodist Church. It gives me great joy to be a part of this wonderful Butler District Team. I remain, the voice on the other end on the phone….. Thelma
