Deborah and Tim joyfully  joined the staff at First Christian in October of 2019 as Interim Ministers. Partnering with others -  they will provide pastoral care, worship leadership, and assist in church administration.  

Tim and Deborah were raised in the Midwest but moved to North Carolina in 2004 to offer ministry among the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers).  In 2018 they completed training in Intentional Interim Ministry through the Center for Congregational Health and are excited to serve ecumenically.  They are particularly interested in ministering among UCC congregations with its emphasis on welcome, inclusivity and the understanding that God is still speaking to us today.  It is their hope to listen well to how the Spirit may be speaking and leading!

Are you visiting this webpage because you are thinking about visiting First Christian for the first time? If so, please feel free to be in touch with either of us if you have any questions.  We know sometimes it takes some courage to visit a new church, so please know you will be welcomed.  If you are a long term member or attender of this congregation, we also would love to hear from you.
