The position of Community Minister is a newly created staff position at FUMC and we happen to think that we have found the perfect person for the job. As Community Minister, Kathy’s primary role will be to serve as “Team Leader” for the Second Time Around Resale Shop (STA). Her primary objectives will be to help establish and maintain processes and procedures and to care for and recruit volunteer staff. Debbie Jones, current Director of STA, will be responsible for training Kathy and helping her establish relationships with the staff, as well as procedures that will help us reach our potential in ministry to the community. Kathy comes to us with extraordinary training and credentials, including a Master of Divinity from Perkins/SMU, as well as a passion for just this kind of ministry. Prior to seeking appointment in the UMC, Kathy served in corporate management and as a registered nurse. She begins her time with us on Sunday, June 4, and will begin training as STA Team Leader on June 22.
