A Letter to the Congregation from Rev. Lyndsay Lee Slocum, re: Andrew Esqueda

Dear RPC Congregation,

Please allow me to share an update regarding RPC's Youth Ministry, ryeX. Andrew Esqueda, our Director of High School Ministry, has recently accepted a position as Director of Youth and Families at Trinity Presbyterian Church in Atlanta.

Trinity is a strong church in the Buckhead area that is ready to take their youth program to the next level. We are certain that Trinity will be blessed with the talent and faith that Andrew brings to their team. Andrew's last Sunday with us will be November 15.

Andrew has been a vital member of RPC's staff for three years. In that time, he has made a significant impact on our High School Ministry that we will continue to recognize for years to come. Many lives have been impacted - both students and adults! I will miss working with Andrew, and I am confident that RPC is a better place because of his gifts.

RPC continues to offer an effective Youth Ministry program. Julianne Shirek, our Director of Middle School Ministry, and Margaret Dickey, who has been filling in as our Youth Program Coordinator, continue to bring strong leadership.

As we begin the work of filling the vacancy left by Andrew's departure, Margaret will continue to acquire High School Ministry responsibilities. I will be working with our volunteers, Session, and leadership teams to ensure strong and active ministry throughout the year. Under the direction of the Personnel Committee, I will be assembling a Search Committee to find new leadership for our high school youth.

Roswell Presbyterian Church is blessed with a strong and faithful staff. We celebrate Andrew's contributions to RPC and rejoice with him as God continues to lead him into new and exciting avenues of ministry. Many blessings to Andrew!
