After over 32 years working at the church, Martha Christopher has announced her retirement, effective March 31, 2022, as the Director of Children’s Ministries here at Peachtree Road UMC. She began working with The Preschool in 1989, became the church’s Associate Director of Children’s Ministries in 1992, and has served as our Director of Children’s Ministries since 1997. Just imagine the thousands of children’s lives she has impacted over the years! Words cannot adequately express our gratitude for Martha’s leadership, but we will try in the days to come as she prepares for the next chapter in her life.
Jordan Black has accepted our invitation to be our new Director of Children’s Ministries. Jordan is no stranger to our leadership team. She first joined our staff as the Associate Director of Children’s Ministries in 2011, left for three years to help run the Matthew Initiative (a children’s ministry founded by her mother), and then rejoined us last August. Jordan knows Peachtree Road UMC, and we am confident that she has all the qualifications needed to lead this important ministry into the future. She will assume the reins of leadership on April 1, 2022.
Please join us in a prayer of gratitude for these two women – for their faith in Christ, their hopes for the future, and their love for families with children.
