YOUTH AND FAMILIES
A new face in youth ministry
After 18 months of search and discernment by a dedicated committee, our youth leadership is now complete! Lisa Witherspoon, who has ably led both ministries during the search, has been promoted to Director of Children & Youth. She will be joined by Phaedra Smith (left), who will serve as Associate Director of Children & Youth.
Phaedra has been a youth ministry intern at Myers Park Presbyterian, has worked as a pre-clubs counselor at Montreat Conference Center, and this month finishes her bachelor’s degree in applied ministries. She wrote in her application letter, “My calling is about continually showing children and youth that God’s table specifically welcomes them and invites them into this community of faith.” She will begin her ministry in February! Thanks to those who served during the search: members Sara Stroud, Claire Driscoll, Leigh Jones, Sally King, and Elizabeth Wilson, and staff Donna Chase, Jill Duffield, Lisa Witherspoon, and Will Edwards
