The staff is ecstatic about our new Director of Youth and Their Families, Sarah Leer. Sarah comes to FPC Dallas from Bentonville, Arkansas, where she served as the Director of Children and Youth Ministry at First Presbyterian Church. Sarah is a graduate of Wake Forest University, Columbia Theological Seminary (where she earned a Master of Arts in Theological Studies and a Master of Theology), and the Clinton School of Public Service. She is a practical theologian who is working on her Doctorate in Educational Ministry at Columbia Theological Seminary.
A lifelong Presbyterian, Sarah has served as a Young Adult Volunteer in New Orleans, as the Moderator of the Young Adult Volunteer Alumni Council, and as the Adult Co-Moderator for the Youth Advisory Team for the Presbytery of Arkansas. Sarah currently serves on the board of the Presbyterian Youth Workers' Association. When she is not working and studying, Sarah enjoys singing Broadway songs in her car, random road trips and adventures, geeking out over pop culture, traveling the world with friends, hanging out with her family, watching college football, and attending youth conferences that include energizers. Sarah’s first day with FPC Dallas will be December 1.
