Diane Ward

Executive Director

Diane is a graduate of Candler School of Theology with a Master’s of Divinity. Before attending seminary, Diane went to the University of Texas at Arlington where she built her own degree focused on non-profit management with concentrations in business, social work and communications. Diane is currently seeking ordination as an elder in the United Methodist Church.

Over the past 5 years, Diane has gained experience through service with Project Transformation in various roles. Her PT career started in 2013 as a Youth Intern in North Texas. She fell in love with ministry of Project Transformation and so she quit the college soccer team to work for the PT after school program in North Texas. She then served her second PT summer in 2014 as the Worship Coordinator/Youth Intern at Oak Cliff. During her time in seminary, Diane went back to Texas to work as a House Pastor (this was her favorite summer).

Diane's hobbies include cooking for other people, hiking, and trying new restaurants. Diane enjoys going on adventures with her husband, Chris, and their dog, Eli. Diane also loves to travel, especially to go visit family back home.
