Helen P. DeLeon

Helen holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology (from the University of Houston) and masters’ degrees in social work (from The University of Chicago School of Social Service Administration) and in divinity (from McCormick Theological Seminary). She was ordained as Minister of Word and Sacrament and installed as Associate Pastor at Webster Presbyterian Church in June 2003.

Helen heard God’s call to ministry while visiting Central America, where her concern for social justice became a passion. It is her conviction that people of faith must stand up for those whose voices have been silenced.

Helen’s primary areas of ministry at WPC are Mission, Care, Adult Education, Fellowship, and Welcoming. She provides pastoral care and counseling to members of WPC and the community. Helen also administers WPC’s community assistance program.

Since joining WPC, Helen has completed a certificate programs in counseling at the Krist Samaritan Counseling Center, Family Systems, and Prepare-Enrich, a pre-marital counseling program.

Helen serves on several committees and boards of the Presbytery of New Covenant, including the Care of Congregations, a subcommittee of the Committee on Ministry, the Central American Partnership Committee, the Board of More Light Presbyterians, and The Institute for Pastoral Studies. Helen recently chaired a Task Force to develop guidelines and an application for the Lynn Johnson Social Justice Grand fund, and will chair the Grant Awards Committee for three years. In 2004, she served on the Associate General Presbyter Nominating Committee. She has served as interim moderator of two sister churches, and recently completed five years of service on the Committee on Preparation for Ministry.

Helen serves our community as a member of the Clear Lake Regional Hospital Ethics Committee, as a member of the Board and Executive Committee of Interfaith Caring Ministries, and as a member of the Faith-Labor Alliance Committee and the Steering Committee of Houston Interfaith Worker Justice. Helen is available for pastoral care and to lead funeral services for members of the community who do not have a church home.
