Montreat Conference Center 401 Assembly Dr Montreat, NC 28757
Lissa spent most of her time growing up in Athens, Ga (Go Dawgs!) where she was encouraged in her faith by her family and church, Central Presbyterian. Lissa attended Presbyterian College, graduating in ’98 with a degree in Christian Education/Religion and a minor in Special Education completing her senior paper on the importance of camp and conference ministry. Lissa found God calling her to work in York, SC at First Presbyterian Church (D.C.E.) and then to Mount Pleasant Presbyterian Church (Director for Youth and Family Ministries). When she felt the tug to hospice ministry in 2005 it came as a shock, but was a wonderful 11 year journey as a hospice chaplain. Lissa was called to be ordained as Minister of Word and Sacrament and attended Erskine Seminary receiving her MDiv in 2012 and later ordained in 2013. Lissa currently serves as Associate Pastor at Westminster Presbyterian Church in Charleston, SC. She is married and has two fabulous children.
