PCPC Welcomes Allison Kelly – PCPC’s Director of Children’s Ministry
Allison has begun her work of ministry amongst us, nurturing and growing faith in children, birth through 5th grade, helping them and their families to become disciples of Christ in God’s love. We hope you will help welcome Allison as she learns about Tampa and PCPC.
Allison hails from north-central West Virginia (go Mountaineers!) in Fairmont and graduated with a BA in Health Care Administration from Mary Baldwin College where she also played tennis and basketball. After working in the health field for several years, Allison received her MA in Christian Education at Union-Presbyterian School of Christian Education in Richmond. Allison served as the DCE for six years at Tyger River Presbyterian Church near Spartanburg, SC and served South Aiken Presbyterian in SC as the Director of Children and Family Ministries for the last ten years.
On a personal note, Allison loves being outside, walking, and exploring new sights. You’re sure to catch her on the tennis court, and she can easily jump in as substitute doubles player. Allison says she is easily excited by libraries, book clubs, and finding the best resources for any area of our lives, and she looks forward to exploring local festivals and attractions, and getting to know the culture of the Tampa Bay area. Allison comes as a single person and “looks forward to claiming the children of Palma Ceia as my own. My own family lives in the Atlanta area where my mother, brother, and his family of three (13, 11, 9) are very active.”
