Adrianne Mazur Kincade of Mansfield, Texas, has been chosen as the 2016 at-large recipient of the McMurry University Cross & Flame Award.  She will be honored at the 11 a.m. service on Sunday, October 16, at First United Methodist Church in Mansfield, TX.

Established in 2000 by the McMurry Alumni Association, this award is given to strengthen the relationship between McMurry University and the United Methodist Church by recognizing individuals for service to their churches and to the University.

 Adrianne is a member of First Methodist Mansfield in Mansfield, TX. She is very active in a Sunday School class as well as small group Bible studies. She has also been a mentor (big sister) to a little through the Big Hope mentoring program sponsored by Big Brothers/Big Sisters.

 After being hired by her church, she served as Group Life Coordinator, connecting visitors and members to small groups within the church. She then transitioned to the ministry called The Wesley Mission Center which helps those in the community with utilities, rent, a food pantry and a thrift store. Two years ago, the organization began the process to become a non-profit agency and have been a 501c3 organization for over a year.

 Adrianne has kept McMurry University close to her heart since graduating in 2000. After graduation she worked for the University in Recruitment and Admissions before her career took the family to the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. Since then, her passion for her alma mater has continued through encouraging high school aged students to attend McMurry. She and her family return to campus regularly for University, social club (Delta Beta Epsilon and Kiva) and athletic events.

 Adrianne credits Ann Spence’s Servant Leadership class with helping her develop a commitment to serving others and the realization that her involvement in, and work for, the church was much more than just a job.

 “In this class I was taught what a true leader should do, which is let the others have the glory as that is what Jesus did. Also in this class I learned my passion for volunteering.
