Youth Ministry Assistant
Susannah Bales is excited to join the wonderful congregation of OGUMC and to serve as the Youth Ministry Assistant. She has served in the United Methodist Churches most of her adult life. After completing her Master of Divinity at Emory University in 2011, she went on to become a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and has been in private practice for over 5 years working with adults while also serving right down the road at Embry Hills UMC as the Director of Nurture and Children's Ministries. She is passionate about inclusive, affirming and inter-generational ministry and is honored to get to know the families and youth of OGUMC. When not working, Susannah can be found hanging out with local theatre folx at places like Onstage Atlanta and Shakespeare Tavern, as well as practicing her pandemic-acquired homesteading skills such as chicken keeping, soap making, bread making and gardening.
