We are thrilled to welcome to our staff Amy Fisher as our new youth director. Amy is a lifelong member of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) with her home congregation being First Christian Church in Kirksville, Missouri. She is a church camp junkie having “grown up” at the Rickman Center, formerly the Disciples church camp in Jefferson City. She then worked several summers at Rickman as program staff for the entire camping program. Amy graduated in 2008 from Disciples-related Columbia College with a BS in both Marketing and Business Management. She has worked for over 15 years in retail sales and brings a wealth of experience to our congregation.
Amy will be in worship this Sunday at both services and looks forward to meeting many of our youth and parents, as well as everyone else. Additionally, she will be in the new youth room after the 10:30am service. If you haven’t yet been in there, stop by and check it out. She looks forward to working with our youth to make it feel like home. She already has lots of great ideas and knows our youth do as well.
Everyone who has met Amy is extremely excited about her joining our Community. Jan Jones, chair of our children and youth department said, “I was so impressed by her experience, her love of kids and her vision for our program. I am convinced she is truly the answer to many prayers and is the right person to lead our Youth.”
