Director of Women's Ministry

Mary Anne has been on staff as Director of Women’s Ministries since 2002. Prior to coming to First Presbyterian Church, she taught Bible at The Westfield Schools in Perry for eight years while her husband, Jim, was the Pastor of Perry Presbyterian Church. Mary Anne grew up in Macon. After graduating from Emory University, she was on staff with Campus Crusade for Christ for four years. “Bill Bright, founder and President of Campus Crusade, probably had the single most influence on my life (aside from my husband, of course).” Mary Anne and Jim have three children and five grandchildren.

“I have the greatest job in the world because it involves meeting ladies and doing the very thing I want to do – which is to pray for and be available to minister in lives and to be challenged and stretched personally.”
