We are currently in a “search and call” process of hiring a new minister as our last Pastor has retired. The church continues to worship and do outreach projects all the same. The Church is made up of its people and the people here at First Christian Church are committed to being the Church for all.
Administrative Assistant, Dorothy Ashton
Having the gift of organization and administration is key to working in a church office. Dorothy joined this Disciple of Christ congregation in 1985 and she uses her God-given gifts of service daily in the church office. She loves the tasks of using her creativity and meeting people who come to the church office. From creating bulletins to managing emails and more, she is now in her 7th year of serving the church as Administrative Assistant to the Pastor and to the congregation.
Music Director, Julie Rechner
Julie is a professional musician who has worked in many aspects of musical worship and has written and recorded her own music. In her own words she shares: “I have loved music ever since I can remember, riding my rocking horse and listening to the stereo. My music “career” started when I was 3, playing “Doe A Deer” on my toy xylophone for house guests. I began playing in church for Vacation Bible School when I was 13, and I have been playing in services ever since. I have an appreciation for a wide variety of musical styles, although I play mostly classical for my enjoyment. I am thankful for the gift of music God has given me and count it a privilege to share it with you at First Christian Church in DeLand.”
