Please join us in thanking Holly Dean for her ministry. Holly joined our staff as Assistant Director of Youth Ministry in May 2019, after serving Christ Church as a youth ministry intern several years before.  We were thrilled to give Holly a start in vocational ministry when she joined us full time, and her gifts helped to make it a great year for our youth.  Holly is engaged to be married and is moving soon to New York City to be with her fiancé, Todd.

Over the last year, Holly has served the youth of our church with skill and compassion. She worked closely with our volunteers, inviting others into ministry at every step of the way. Together with parishioner Bridget Vadeboncoeur, Holly was instrumental in founding a new small group for girls known as The Circle.

While we’ll miss Holly dearly, we are excited to see what the future holds for her ministry, and we are grateful for the impact she’s had on our youth.  We wish you all the best, Holly!

Landon is an alumni of the Episcopal Service Corps, he serves on the vestry of his church, and he is passionate about helping people of all ages explore their faith. Welcome, Landon!
