The Session, Personnel Committee and I invite you to join us in welcoming Anna Richardson Raab as West Raleigh’s Director of Administration & Communication. Anna is a recent graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where she graduated with a BA in Biology and a double minor in Environmental Studies and Women’s & Gender Studies. While in college Anna was the Moderator of Presbyterian Campus Ministry and served as an intern with the youth at University Presbyterian Church. Since college she has remained engaged in youth ministry at Western Boulevard Presbyterian Church as well as serving as their Social Media Coordinator.
Through her programmatic work in the church, Anna has seen how important effective and efficient administration and communication is in the life of the church, and she is looking forward to bringing her organizational skills, attention to detail, creativity and significant technological skill to her work at West Raleigh.
Anna will be visiting many committee and group meetings as she gets to know the people, programs and structure that make up West Raleigh. She will also be connecting with the church administrators at our neighboring churches, and she is registered for the Communications Workshop with denominational specialists that is being sponsored by New Hope Presbytery on October 12th.
