Welcome to New Staff
Welcome to New Staff

Every year at this time of the year we have new staff starting in many of our congregations - new settled ministers, interim ministers, new religious educators, music directors and administrators. The staff of the Central East Region would like to welcome all our new folks to our region and let you know that we are here to help. Need assistance? Please contact your primary contact. You can find out who that is here.

This year has been a particularly busy year in our region and we have a lot of new faces to welcome. To celebrate all these new folks we've listed what we can below. We know this list is incomplete, because we don't always hear about new folks until they've been around for a while. If you have a new staff person to celebrate, please list them in the comments below.
