The Rev. Dr. Teresa Angle-Young, an elder in the North Georgia Conference, has joined the staff of United Methodist Communications in Nashville as Director of Seeker Communications and Advertising.
“In all of my appointments I have learned, grown, and seen fruit. I truly believe that God can and does employ us even to the ends of the earth, so for me, serving in a UMC agency is yet another exciting expression of the many ways God can use us to facilitate an encounter with the living Christ. … I'm very excited to imagine what God is going to do as we move forward, and very thankful for this opportunity to serve,” said Angle-Young.
Angle-Young will be guiding the denomination’s communications with seekers – individuals who are not committed to a church yet are searching for deeper meaning in life – by developing faith-based strategic communications plans, messaging and initiatives for advertising and social media campaigns.
The center of The United Methodist Church’s advertising and seeker outreach is RethinkChurch.org, where visitors may interact, learn more about the church, and search for United Methodist churches in their area.
When asked about her move to Nashville, Dr. Angle-Young said, “I'm a homegrown Tennessee girl. … I've always said I would love to go back to Nashville. It's a dynamic city with a lot to offer but it still feels like a ‘community.’ For my family, it's a great combination.”
