Conference Team, North West District Cultivator
Piper Ramsey-Sumner is an Oklahoma-born, Texas-raised pastor’s kid with a passion for lifelong learning, community building, and creating spaces for personal and spiritual transformation outside the walls of a church. She has been involved in Christian ministry for more than a decade—working in youth ministry, homeless outreach, and intentional communal living.
Piper received her Master of Divinity degree from Iliff School of Theology, and she currently serves as Cultivator of Fresh Expressions for the Florida Conference of The United Methodist Church, where she explores new ways of reaching new people outside of traditional churches. In the Tallahassee area, Piper facilitates Tally Brew Theology, a community that meets in local breweries and pubs to engage in meaningful dialogue on subjects related to religion and philosophy.
In 2020, she joined the video-based social media app, TikTok, as a way to engage in public theology and connect with others as they explore their faith. Piper also runs a book club and an online community for those hurt by the church. Piper lives in Tallahassee with her husband, Kyle, and her cat, Rosemary. She loves to run, create, be outside, play music, and talk about philosophy and theology.
