CO-PASTOR

Dawn preaches and comes up with ideas. You can catch up with her at 701 on Sunday mornings or at the Spot (our office space) during the week. Dawn is still adapting to life here in Columbia (via San Francisco) and will likely try to make you walk if you're scheduled for a meet up within a 2 mile radius. Wear your walking shoes.
