Dear Students, Families, Members, and Friends of Heritage United Methodist,
I am excited to welcome Peggy Ingram to join our staff team as an Interim Director of Student Ministries at Heritage. Peggy brings decades of experience as a student ministry director, advisor, and coach at the church, district, and annual conference levels. She has also been a sought after presenter and teacher at conferences and trainings for student and children’s ministry directors; as well as a retreat speaker a gazillion times.
How did we land this student ministry legend, you ask? She was the director at Aldersgate United Methodist a while ago (no need to put years on it–we’ll just say that was before any of our current students were born… 😁), and attended several student ministry training events at Heritage. She then moved to Hyde Park United Methodist, where she recruited a young adult named Eric Johnson as a volunteer leader. Their families have been good friends ever since.
When the applicants for our opening didn’t yield candidates that were the right fit for us, I thought it was worth a try to see if it was possible to lure her over to help us in our season of transition, and I asked Eric to give her a call too to talk her into it, and it worked! The whole staff has been glad to have her on the team, and we’re thankful for the gifts, experience, and insights she brings to help us get a sense of where we are, and to envision where we could go in the future!
