Pastor Sarah Kiviniemi McIntosh

Pastor Sarah Kiviniemi McIntosh

Pastor Sarah comes to us right out of the Candler School of Theology at Emory University. We have been thrilled to make her acquaintance and experience the new energy and focus she brings to Wesley. She's from Asheville NC and went to college in Boone NC, then on to Atlanta and Emory.  She never expected to leave the land of mountains, tall pines, and cool breezes and move to beaches, palm trees, and HEAT - but here she is.  She fell in love with a Florida boy, her husband Shane. He has also taken on his first pastoral assignment in Anthony, just north of Ocala.  We wish them both the best!  Watch out for her all around town, where you might see her running.  She's a regular entrant in local races!

He is an excellent role model to youths and young men in the community as they come to help him around our church.

Linda grew up in this church, attending with her parents since 1962, and becoming a member in her own right in 1966. Linda has worked for many years in our audio booth in the sanctuary, managing the sound system and preparing the slideshows you see throughout each service, as well as for any special events needing the sound system. She’s the proud mother of Misty, and even prouder grandmother to Jade Marie, who can often be seen helping out in the sound booth on Sunday mornings.  Just recently, Thaddeus Michael, or TJ for short, joined Jade Marie.  "Gigi" is ecstatic!  In her ‘spare’ time Linda manages a family-owned business here in Gainesville.
