New FUMC Staff

On behalf of the Staff-Parish Relations Committee, I am delighted to share that we have approved the hiring of three new staff members. We are so thankful for the gifts that each of them bring to our church’s leadership. All of these are part-time positions. Please be sure to welcome them and to thank members of the SPRC, especially Chair Laura Tinsley, for their good work.

Stacy Hays, Director of Family Ministries: Stacy is a long-time member of FUMC whom many of you already know, and we look forward to the experience and servant’s heart she brings to this position. She has most recently served as Mission/Outreach Chair on the Administrative Council and also works with the United Way.

Judy Sanders, Director of Children’s Ministries: Judy moved to West Point from Louisville last year, but she is no stranger to FUMC. She is “Bruff’s mom” and brings over 50 years as a schoolteacher and Vacation Bible School director to our church family. We look forward to the enthusiasm and vision that Judy brings to this position.

Camden Shock, Interim Director of Youth Ministries: Camden has served as our youth intern for the past three years and is a student at Mississippi State University, with plans to graduate in December. Camden has faithfully attended and assisted at youth gatherings during that time. We look forward to the ideas and energy that he brings to this position. We also welcome Kaeley Tackett as our new youth intern. Kaeley is a college student, works at Jubilations, and looks forward to working with the young women in our youth group.

Let us be in prayer for our church staff, and thank you for your support of the SPRC’s work. God has a great year in store for us!

all good things to each of you,
Dr. Darian
