Minister to Children & Their Families

Searcy First Welcomes Catherine Vest!

Catherine Vest has been selected by the SPRC to be the  Minister to Children and Families with Children. Her projected start date is October 31st (that’s a bit spooky!!). Catherine is well known in our congregation, as she has been active here at FUMC for over four years. She has been an Associate Member of the church and has recently moved that to Full Membership.

Catherine has worked since 2012 as the Administrative Assistant to the Principal and Assistant Principal of Searcy Westside Elementary School. She had worked previously in marketing and public relations with firms in Little Rock and Fayetteville. Catherine holds a BA in Journalism, Public Relations/Advertising from the University of Arkansas.

Around our church, Catherine has been a volunteer in the Youth Ministry as a Counselor & Small Group Leader. She was the volunteer adult leader to LMP (Local Mission Project) in Springdale last June. In addition, she has been a VBS volunteer. And, Catherine is one of our church’s Congregational Care Ministers.

An extremely capable problem solver, excellent time manager, team oriented leader, strong communicator, positive presence and motivator to everyone around her, Catherine Vest is a wonderful addition to our Ministry Staff. Her commitment to Jesus Christ is the foundation for everything. She joins us with an eagerness to share the Love of Christ with the children of Searcy and their families.

Catherine’s daughter, Anna, is a Freshman at the U of A. Her son, Drew, is a Sophomore at Searcy High School. We celebrate this wonderful family as we welcome Catherine onto the staff and commit to supporting her leadership in the Children’s Ministry.

This is a Hallelujah Day for Searcy First!
