We are delighted to welcome our two newest COA staff members!
1) Kelly Johnson, as Church Administrator beginning 5/1/2023.
Kelly was born and raised in Annapolis, and grew up going to Woods Memorial Presbyterian in Severna Park. She joined COA as a member this Spring, and has already gotten involved in our Mission Committee. She brings over 12 years of professional experience providing financial and risk advisory consultation services to commercial, nonprofits and public sector clients.
She will be running our church office including (but not limited to) our email and text communications; creation of the bulletin and slides for Sunday morning worship; building use management and financial tasks with our Treasurer. She will work closely with me and with all of our church Elders and committees. This truly is a “jack (or jill) of all trades” sort of role, and we are so very glad she is here!
2) Madison Davis, as Christian Educator beginning 5/15/2023
Madison is originally from Baltimore, but also lived overseas for a great deal of her childhood because of family in the Air Force. Also because of a military family, she was exposed to a number of different faith traditions. She entered the military herself where she met her husband Chris who was raised Roman Catholic. They settled down in Annapolis right down the street from our church and have since had their two children Charlie and Alexandra. Madison has a wealth of experiences working and volunteering with children, and one of her particular gifts and passions is music! A fun fact about Madison is that she performs and teaches Improv!
