Welcome to Our New Associate Pastor!

The Staff-parish Relations Committee has requested the appointment of Rev. Leah Burns as Associate Pastor for Church Street. As a part-time Associate Pastor, she will focus on worship, pastoral care, and Stephen Ministry. Her appointment was effective on January 3, 2013 and her first Sunday with us is today.

Leah’s appointment follows the decision last July by Church Council to incorporate small group ministry into our life as a church. Rev. Sarah Varnell asked for this new ministry as one of her areas of ministry. Thus, the SPRC realized the need for a part-time associate pastor to free Sarah to take up small group ministry.
Leah comes to Church Street after six years as pastor of Haven’s Chapel United Methodist Church in the Oak Ridge District. You will meet her in worship this morning. Welcome, Leah!
