Rev. Claire Miller

Pastor Claire Miller came to Patmos as a "second career" pastor who answered her call to ministry after a fulfilling career which took her from the DC Metro area to the Kennedy Space Center in Florida and back to Virginia. .

She is a Provisional Elder in the Virginia Conference of the United Methodist Church. Prior to earning her Master's of Divinity (MDiv) at Wesley Theological Seminary, she graduated from Webster University with an MA in Human Resources Development and from Radford University with a BA in Criminal Justice.

She and her husband Jan are the parents of four grown children, four grandchildren and several four-legged "children". Their youngest daughter Kristin lives joins them in ministry at Patmos.



Jan Stinnette

Patmos has been blessed to have Jan Stinnette as our Music Director and Organist at Patmos since May of 2010. Under her talented and creative leadership the Patmos Choir has provided meaningful music for our weekly worship services as well as well as quality Easter and Christmas programs.

Jan's creativity has been especially evident as we have navigated both in-person and livestreamed worship during the COVID-19 pandemic.
