I am thrilled to share joyful news: Katie McGervey has accepted my invitation to serve as our Director of Children’s Ministries. Katie brings a generous mix of creativity, excellent organizational skills, a joyful caring heart, an eagerness to involve one and all, and a practical roll-up-your-sleeves approach. During these interim months, her primary charge has been to keep things going. Going forward Katie is brimful of ideas. With support from Amy as Associate Rector for Family Ministries, Katie will be collaborating with our renovation team and others to shape and support this ministry at the heart of St. Columba’s.
I am thankful for the wisdom and support of the Search Committee:
"After months of reflecting on the needs of St. Columba’s children’s ministry, conducting a nationwide search, reviewing resumes and interviewing candidates, the Search Committee unanimously put forth Katie McGervey as our selection for St. Columba’s next director of children’s ministries.
Katie’s calling to this position is evident, and we are confident that she will build on the strong foundation of the program. Her vision for how St. Columba’s can raise our children as children of God and in the Episcopal Church excited us. We look forward to joining Katie in fulfilling our baptismal covenant to do everything in our power to support our children in their life in Christ."
