Rev Lynda J. Bates-Stepe grew up in the United Methodist Church in Branford, Connecticut and has served churches in CT and NY since 1987.  She has been on Long Island for over 20 years first at Setauket UMC, then Interim at East Meadow UMC and then at Commack UMC. Most recently she has served with the people of Smithtown UMC as Interim after the untimely death of their pastor.  Rev. Lynda and the people of Smithtown UMC were pleased when the Bishop made her the regularly appointed pastor on July 1, 2019.

Rev. Bates-Stepe serves on the Board of Ordained Ministry, the District Board of Ministry, and enjoys working with colleagues and mentoring those who are just beginning their ministry.  She and her husband, Atis Stepe, love living in the parsonage with their two dogs, David and JP, and their turtle, Buddy.
