Reverend Zack Martin
I’m Rev. Zack Martin, the senior pastor here at Crossroads UMC. I’m a native Georgian who has traveled and lived all around the world. Since becoming ordained in 1999, I served churches in Doraville, Norcross, Dunwoody, Cumming, and now Conyers. Prior to that I was a missionary in Zamboanga del Sur, Philippines and Lumberton, North Carolina. I love God and God’s people. I always strive to be relevant and real in all my preaching and teaching. Most people describe my preaching style as a “conversational” style.
Mary Lynn Luke, Director of Music Ministries
I have worked with the Crossroads UMC music program since November 1999. I am a choral director and pianist in the Conyers area. I commit myself fully to preparing quality music at both our contemporary and traditional services. I also coordinate our drama ministry so the message comes alive in alternative ways.
Rachel Blanchette, Youth Program Director
I am the Youth Program Director for Crossroads UMC. I graduated from Grand Valley State University in Michigan in 2013 with a Bachelor’s degree in psychology. I have a passion for working with youth and have worked in outdoor ministry settings for many years before coming to Georgia.
Ginger Peek, Director of Children’s Ministries
I was born in Indianapolis, IN. I know sign language and have worked 8 years with special needs children in Pennsylvania’s public schools. I enjoy working with children, crafts, learning and constantly growing in my walk with God. I look forward to working with your children in the many exciting programs that are available here at Crossroads UMC.
Paul Hedges, Praise Band Leader
I am a guitar and drum instructor in the Grayson area, where I live with my wife, Ashlee. I have been blessed to have the opportunity to serve as worship leader for numerous retreats, conferences and events in the metro Atlanta area. I also write and perform my own original worship and Christian inspirational music. I love working with youth and seeing them grow closer to Christ through uninhibited worship.
Carol Turner, Secretary
I am a native to Newton County, wife of a Baptist minister, mother and grandmother. Growing up in the home of a minister, I know the importance of church administration and I have served in that area for many years. It is my pleasure to serve the staff and the congregation of Crossroads United Methodist Church.
