Meet some of the women of our church who regularly contribute to this site:
Hi! My name is Amy and I have lived in Lubbock for the past 25 years. I was born in Oklahoma (don’t judge) to Marcus and Debbie. I have one brother, Daniel who is 3 years younger than me. I also have a new sister-in-law, Kaitlin. I am a city/country girl. When I was 14 my family moved south of town towards New Home, TX. I can shop and shoot with the best of them! I love music!!! I have been known to spontaneously burst into song in random places and sometimes embarrassing my friends.
I have been a member of WPC for 9 ½ years and have loved becoming part of the body of Christ. I began in the Late Nite college ministry and grew deeper in my relationship with God. I am blessed to have served in the Youth, Children, Women, and Outreach ministries within WPC.
God has blessed me with many different opportunities to minister outside of the United States. My first mission trip was to Asia when I was 17 years old. I returned to a different part of Asia at the age of 22 with WPC. I have also been to Belize and Eastern Europe with WPC. Oh the stories I could tell you! What happens on a mission trip (that embarrasses someone) USUALLY stays on a mission trip!
Currently, I am serving with Operation Mobilization in Southern Africa. I am excited about what God has planned for me in this stage of my life. Read about my ministry here: http://amydkinafrica.blogspot.com/
I am SO excited about this WoW blog! There are so many amazing women in WPC and I can’t wait to see what God has to teach us through each other.
Currently serving as Moderator for the Women of Westminster (WoW), Kasey and husband Todd have been members of WPC for 20 years. Born Mary Kathryn Giovannetti in upstate N.Y., she attended Christ the King High School and Texas Tech University. Kasey and Todd have two grown children and two precious granddaughters. After working mainly in Human Resources for Methodist (now Covenant) Hospital for 16 years, Kasey spends her time volunteering, playing some golf, and being “Gram.”
Marcy, immediate past moderator of Women of Westminster, is actively involved at Westminster and in the Lubbock community.
Marcy’s career background includes Sales and Marketing at both Southwest Airlines and Fox Photo, and she retired from Southwest Airlines in 1989 after serving as Vice President of Personnel from 1982-1989. At that time, she and her husband, Bob, moved from Dallas to Lubbock where he became President of Texas Tech University and Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center. From then until 2004, Marcy enjoyed her role as First Lady at both Texas Tech (1989-1996) and The University of Tulsa (1996-2004). As they retired from The University of Tulsa, in addition to Bob’s being named President Emeritus, Marcy was awarded the title of First Lady Emerita (perhaps a ‘first’ in higher education!)
Marcy’s greatest joys have come from leading women’s retreats and Bible studies, and she currently co-leads a weekly Tuesday morning women’s study at First Baptist Church of Lubbock and helps facilitate both an evening and morning monthly study at Westminster for WoW in the Word. She serves on the Lubbock Development Council for the Buckner Foundation, the Advisory Council for the Talkington School for Young Women Leaders where she chairs the Traditions and Special Programming Committee, and she is a member of the Women’s Health Initiative Steering Committee for the University Medical Center Health System in Lubbock. She and Bob also are volunteers for Lubbock Meals on Wheels.
Marcy and Bob have four adult children and five grandchildren, and in retirement, they are living in Lubbock. Marcy’s passion includes her Christian faith, her love for the Lord, and Bible study.
Stacy has an undergraduate degree in English from TCU and her Masters in Mass Communications from Texas Tech. She is a member of the Association of Fundraising Professionals and attained her Certified Fundraising Executive designation in December 2012. Stacy has worked in the non-profit sector since 1999. She has held management positions in both the non-profit sector as well as higher education. She has secured funding through major gifts, special events, endowment campaigns, and grants. Stacy has written and secured both state and private grants for the organizations she has represented to fund operating expenses as well as capital needs. In her career, she has raised in excess of $1.5 million through grants and private gifts. She is currently an independent development consultant.
Stacy is married to Ray, a lawyer, and they have Paden, a soon-to-be third grader at the new Jayne Ann Miller Elementary School.
Hello! I have the privilege of managing content for WoW’s blog site. I am new to the WPC family, having moved to Lubbock from the Metroplex a few years ago. I have been married to Stephen for ten years, and he is one of God’s most precious gifts to me. We are part of the Maker’s Mark Sunday School Class, and I have a wonderful women’s small group that blesses my life with friendship, encouragement, thoughtful Bible study, and prayer.
Currently, I serve as the Director of Institutional Effectiveness for B. H. Carroll Theological Institute (BHCTI). I find deep joy in the ministry God has given me with our faculty and students. Prior to joining BHCTI, I received degrees in psychology and counseling from Dallas Baptist University, where I was involved with the Intercessory Prayer Ministry and served on staff for several years.
In my free time, I enjoy walking our Cairn Terrier (Scout), reading, baking, and listening to music. I also appreciate a good vanilla latte and great conversation. Find me at church if you’d like to plan a time to fellowship and enjoy a cup of joe!
