You may have noticed the names of my friends and colleagues, Donna Dobbs and Ashley Hall, added to the contributors list on the left-hand column of the blog. Many of you know Donna and Ashley, or know of them. Both of them give leadership in women's ministry, not only locally but denominationally, and are consistent, eloquent, intelligent, informed, feminine voices for complementarianism. They are also champions of the importance of doctrine in the life of the believer and in the educational ministry of the church.
Donna is our Christian Education Director at First Pres. She is a long-time staff member, and native Mississippian, with an outstanding record of service and ministry. She is a sheer delight to work with, but don’t let her fun-loving spirit fool you – she is serious about Christian Ed and incredibly good at promoting and facilitating it (she is also a “secret weapon” when it comes to congregational care, because she knows and looks out for so many people).
Along with her works Ashley Hall, our Women’s Ministry Associate Director. Ashley came to us from Erskine College and is working on her Master's degree at Reformed Theological Seminary while facilitating the women's ministry of the church. If you know Ashley, you know she has a passion for her work and a deep love for the church. She pours her life out for and into our women. Ashley and Donna serve a remarkable group of highly-educated, energetic, hard-working and devoted women.
