May 23, 2021 – Pentecost Sunday
We welcome Martha Perusek this morning. Martha currently serves as Director of Development at the Candler School of Theology at Emory University. A long-time development and nonprofit professional, Martha has raised funds and support for organizations including the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, Latin American Association and 15 years with the American Cancer Society at both the local and national levels. Martha’s religious roots are in the Pentecostal tradition having been raised in Assemblies of God churches. She has degrees in biblical studies and communications from Evangel University, an Assemblies of God liberal arts college located in Springfield, Missouri (the AG HQ). She later converted to Catholicism and later became gradually and “accidentally” Baptist following her first visit to Oakhurst Baptist Church in 2008.
