Point Hope United Methodist Church welcomes new pastor

Reverend Elizabeth Sullivan

Charleston, SC (July 12) -- Point Hope United Methodist Church recently announced that Reverend Elizabeth Sullivan will be leading the church as the newest pastor. Reverend Sullivan will take the place of Reverend Narcie McClendon Jeter.

"One does not have to be around Elizabeth long to discover that her enthusiasm for the Gospel and ministry is infectious," states Woody Grantham, chair of the church's staff-parish committee. "I know I speak on behalf of the entire congregation when I say we are all eager to experience her leadership at Point Hope!"

A South Carolina native, Pastor Sullivan attended UNC School for the Arts where she received a bachelor's degree in music. She earned her master's degree in education from the College of Charleston.

Pastor Sullivan attended Duke Divinity, Denver Seminary and Fuller Theological Seminary. She graduated with her master's degree in divinity from Asbury Theological Seminary.

Prior to serving at Point Hope United Methodist Church, Pastor Sullivan served as an associate pastor at two of the fastest growing Methodist churches in the country.

"The community of Point Hope feels like a family," said Pastor Sullivan. "Having served at a large member church of more than 2,800 people for the last four years, it feels nice to be a part of a family again."

Pastor Sullivan and her husband live in Mount Pleasant with their three daughters, Anna Grace, Sarah Beth and Kennedy.
