Faye Walker - Administrative Assistant

Hi, my name is Faye Walker and I am the administrative assistant here at The Plains United Methodist Church. Although this is a new position for me, I have attended TPUMC for 5 years, along with my grandson, Eric, whom I have the privilege of raising. I have supervised the nursery for our children's ministry for about 3 and a half years. Despite the fact I attended college in Virginia Beach, where I resided for 10 years, I am a hometown girl who graduated from Athens High School.
