Norma was born in Hebbronville, Texas and grew up in Edinburg where her family moved in 1970 and has been a member of El Buen Pastor UMC ever since.  She has a wonderful heritage in ministry.  Her grandfather was a local pastor in the Rio Grande Conference, her mother has served faithfully in music ministry all of her life, and her brother is actively involved in ministry as well.  In 1977, Norma attended Youth Camp in Sacramento New Mexico, where she first felt her calling into ministry.  Norma graduated from Edinburg High School and attended Pan American University from 1981-1985 where she majored in communications.  Like many young adults, she was M.I.A. until her return in 1994, which has given her the passion for reaching young adults before they become missing-in-action.

Since 1994, she has enjoyed many years in service as a lay person at El Buen Pastor.  She has worked with Children, Youth, Young Adults, Faith in Action, Prayer, and Caring Ministries.  She has been a member of the Council of Ministries, Administrative Board, and worked one year as the church secretary.  Norma has taken, and facilitated, Disciple Bible Studies,  attended various Schools of Mission, Lay Speaking Trainings, and was commissioned as a Lay Preacher in 2005.  She was licensed as a Local Pastor in the United Methodist Church in 2007 and serves as Executive Associate Pastor and Young Adult's Pastor.

Norma is married to Bill Pollard and together have two daughters, Sarah and Hannah, who are their answers to prayer.   The fifth member of the Pollard household is their black & tan cocker spaniel, Button, who has the most awesome lion paws!
