Debby Fox to Join Conference Connectional Ministries Staff


Rev. Debby Fox will join the staff of the North Georgia Conference Office of Connectional Ministries on Sept. 9 in the role of Associate Director of Connectional Ministries.

Her emphasis will be on children's ministry and church training. Currently the Pastor of Christian Education and Discipleship at Gainesville First UMC, Fox brings with her much experience in teaching and training.

"Rev. Fox, a professional Christian Educator, will bring deep conference experience and broad Christian wisdom to the team.  Her knowledge of our conference processes and our volunteer personnel means almost no learning curve is required," said Rev. Mike Selleck, Director of Connectional Ministres. "She will be a key support to the District Superintendents as they continue to strive for excellent training for their local leadership, and a new resource and coach for all aspects of children's ministries. Debby is a seasoned trainer, leader, and a consummate team player. We look forward seeing what she brings to our team and how the conference as a whole will benefit."

She has been an instrumental part of the development of Connectional Cafe -- the North Georgia Conference training initiative.

"I am looking forward to being able to encourage and equip local congregations as they seek to make disciples – and to strengthen their own faith journeys through study, prayer, fellowship and mission," said Fox.
