Church family,

This week I'm thrilled to welcome two amazing new staff members to our church! I'm grateful for the faithful work of our Personnel Committee (Joe Gandy, June McGee, Anne Owen, Meredith Pogson, Lee Ann Pyeatt, and Raleigh Smith) and Co-Treasurers (Sue Pointer and BJ Turner) to develop a new staff structure that fits our church's size, budget, and priorities, and I hope you will express your appreciation as well. Please read the information below to meet our new staff who will begin work on Tuesday, and be sure to introduce yourself to make them feel welcome!

Rev. Russ Boyd
Senior Minister

Mollie Donihe Wilkerson will be joining our staff as Office Administrator. In this 10-hour-per-week position, Mollie will handle office management, communication, scheduling, and other weekly and monthly administrative tasks that help the church run efficiently. She is a native of Roanoke, Virginia and a graduate of Warren Wilson College (BA, Social Work) and Vanderbilt Divinity School (Master of Divinity). Mollie has discerned a call to liturgical arts ministry, and is building a home business leading workshops and creating handmade textile art (including the stole presented to Allison on Sunday).

After serving on the Connect Ministries staff this summer, Ryan Wilkerson is returning to our church as Interim Associate Minister. A native of Fort Worth, Ryan is a graduate of Chapman University (BA, Integrated Educational Studies; MA, Leadership Development) and Vanderbilt Divinity School (Master of Divinity) where he met his wife, Mollie (see above). Most recently, he served as Camp Minister & Manager for the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Virginia, overseeing the programs and operations of Craig Springs Camp & Retreat Center. Ryan is currently looking for full-time employment in the area, and will join us on a month-to-month contract for 20-hours-per-week to oversee youth, education, and outreach while our church searches for a long-term Ministry Intern. He can be reached at
