51Rev. Dr. Dottie Escobedo Frank is a pastor and District Superintendent with the United Methodist Church. In her ministry Dottie is on the leading edge of church transformation and reStarts. She is a speaker, writer, and community leader.

As a speaker, Dottie’s voice brings courage and hope to pastors and church leaders around the world. Dottie believes we are living in a time of epochal change, which requires the church find sacred ways to die in order to be reborn.

She calls for heretics and edge-dwellers to lead the church forward. Now is the time, she says,  to push                                                                                                       these new leaders to the forefront of church restarts.
