Meet United Ministries’ new director – Jean Covell Silva!

August 16, 2013 @ 3:57 pm

Jean

A graduate of Washington High School, Jean grew up in Pensacola, Florida. She received a B.A. in Religion from Davidson College and is a Certified Christian Educator in the Presbyterian Church (USA).  Jean has served in three congregations as Director of Christian Education including Christ Episcopal Church, and Trinity Presbyterian Church in Pensacola, Florida, and Grace Presbyterian Church in Panama City, Florida.  Most recently Jean served as the Associate Executive Presbyter/Head of Staff and Hunger Action Enabler for the Presbytery of Florida.

As the new executive director of United Ministries, Jean views her position as a culmination of her experiences in working with churches and in hunger action.  She views her work as chiefly about helping people and churches live out the Greatest Commandment (Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, strength and mind and love your neighbor as yourself – Mark 12:30-31), and the mission of United Ministries is a natural continuation of that work.

“I have felt for some time that I would enjoy being more hands-on in mission through my work with the Church, to love my neighbor as I do myself.  Working with United Ministries is the answer to my heart’s prayer.”  Jean also finds it an act of coming full circle at United Ministries.  When she left her position at Christ Church in 1987 and moved away, she knew Father Bob Graves was working with other pastors to create United Ministries.  “And now 26 years later,” she observes, “here I am, working alongside dedicated volunteers who live out Jesus’ words in Matthew 25 – ministering to the least of these, and therefore, doing it to and for Jesus.  And it is all made possible because of the generosity of the churches and individuals in this community.”

Jean has two grown children, Joe,  a law student at UNC, Chapel Hill, and a daughter, Katherine, a student at Davidson College in North Carolina.

United Ministries in The Independent Weekly

August 16, 2012 @ 9:28 am

Check out a great article from Jennie McKeon in The Independent News! Thanks Jennie and In Weekly for taking the time to consider poverty in this community.

We see first-hand that for many people in our community, work often is difficult to find, pay often is less than what is needed to survive (let alone thrive), housing often is not affordable, and the stress of simply putting food on the table can overwhelm a family, making daily life choices more and more complex.

Bringing names and faces to the people and families in our community who are in crisis can help us all relate to each other better. When we understand poverty not as a statistic or number, but as a neighbor or a hard-working friend, then we connect in a deeper and more meaningful way. We want better not just for our own families, but for every family, every person in this community.

Thank you again to In Weekly for helping us to see this complex matter in a more hopeful and clear light!
