This year at our synod assembly, we will ordain Tiffany Chaney. She is the Pastor and Mission Developer at the Intersection, a new mission church start in Dorchester section of Boston, MA.
Tiffany is a graduate of our partner seminary in Philadelphia, LTSP. Before seminary she worked in the Health care field, and holds an MBA.
We like to tease her about her accent, as she is originally from Alabama. But then again, she has every right to return the favor as she meets all these Bostonians.
This past weekend, our Director of Mission, Jane Shields visited the Intersection as they celebrated seven bapstims in worship.
In the words of one person, "this makes God smile."
What is Tiffany doing right? Connecting faith with daily life, meeting people where they are, and welcoming them into a place that feels like home.
Just a little news from the Mission field of New England.
