Rev. Molly K. Morris named associate pastor for youth, family and community outreach

DeKALB - Westminster Presbyterian Church has a new associate pastor, according to an announcement from the church.

The Rev. Molly K. Morris was installed as the new Associate Pastor for Youth, Family, and Community Outreach at Westminster Presbyterian Church in DeKalb at an outdoor service on the church’s front lawn on Sunday, May 23 at 3 p.m.

It was an ecumenical service, featuring Rev. Dr. Joe Mitchell of New Hope Missionary Baptist Church, Rabbi Julie Adler of Congregation Beth Shalom, and various Presbyterian pastors from the area, as well as youth from the congregation, according to the news release.

Morris graduated from San Francisco Theological Seminary in San Anselmo, CA, in 2018. Since then, she has served as a chaplain resident at a hospital, a case manager for a family violence program, and a part-time youth coordinator at a Presbyterian Church – all in New Orleans, LA.

At Westminster, Morris will be ministering to youth and their families, overseeing the church’s community outreach – which includes a free food distribution out of the church’s parking lot every Thursday – as well as preaching once a month.
