Dear Friends,

I am excited to announce that Carrie Weatherford will be our new Director of Children and Family Ministries. Carrie has served as Roswell Presbyterian Church's Director of Youth Ministry since 2012.

Carrie brings tremendous gifts and skills to this position. She has a bachelor's degree in Education from the College of Charleston with a minor in Psychology, and she is certified by the State of Georgia in early childhood and middle grades education. In May 2016, Carrie will graduate from Columbia Theological Seminary with a Masters of Divinity.

Roswell Presbyterian Church has been home to Carrie for many years as she grew up in RPC's children and youth ministries. Carrie and her husband, Jason, along with their 3-year-old son, Cooper, are active members of RPC.

We're excited about this opportunity for Carrie, and the opportunity she will have to influence our Children's Ministry. Through her passion, energy, and desire to see children grow in their love of Christ, we are excited for Carrie to build on the strong foundation of RPC's Children's Ministry to take it to new heights.

This move does create an opening in ryeX, RPC's Youth Ministry. While it will be a challenge to fill Carrie's shoes, Andrew Esqueda, our Director of High School Ministry, and Julianne Shirek, our Director of Middle School Ministry, are truly gifted leaders. We are confident that they will continue their amazing work in ministering to Roswell Presbyterian Church's youth.

In the interim, we have hired Margaret Dickey to be a part of the youth staff team to assist us with this transition. Margaret, who graduated in May with a Masters of Divinity from Columbia Theological Seminary, served as one of our summer youth interns this past summer. We are confident that our Youth Ministry will continue to thrive, as it serves our youth through their faith journey.

As always, we covet your prayers for our Youth and Children's Ministries staff as we continue on this exciting journey that God has called us to at Roswell Presbyterian Church.

Blessings,
Rev. Lyndsay Lee Slocum
