There is a New Face Around Here

There’s a new face in The Tide office! We are thrilled to introduce Sarah McKee and welcome her to our staff.  Sarah is filling a position that had been vacant for several months and is helping us get our digital communications back on track.  So far Sarah has been doing a great job of getting fresh content on The Tide website, posting updates on social media, and sending out weekly our weekly enews.  She will also assist in the planning and promotion of upcoming events, and will be the main contact person for those of you who volunteer as The Tide advocates in your local congregation.  We are glad to have Sarah working with us and hope you will make her feel welcome as she joins us in ministry. Here is her short autobiography:

Sarah and her fiancé Jacob

Hello, my name is Sarah and I am addicted to Sheetz.

Not really, but pretty close. My love for Sheetz will never outweigh my love for Christ. I was born and raised in Chambersburg, PA by my mama, dad, and two little brothers, but you wouldn’t be able to tell that they are younger as they tower over me. I attended Shalom Christian Academy from kindergarten to 12th grade and graduated in 2015, after which I moved to Nashville, Tennessee and attended Trevecca Nazarene University, from where I am graduating this May with an Associates of Arts in Praise and Worship.

I know, that is pretty much the exact opposite of my job here at The Tide, but I know that it will all come together one day. I am getting married this August and the dream that God has given both of us is a ministry center where we are able to teach life skills and have after school tutoring available; and working here at The Tide is helping me prepare for that. We don’t know when that will happen, but we both know it will.

My passion for ministry started way back when I was little. I don’t remember how old or what grade because for as long as I can remember, I have been involved in some sort of ministry. There are a couple things that drew me in to work for The Tide: first, being completely honest, I needed a job and my grandmother used to own a restaurant where she had me working from age 13. I was determined to not work with food. Second, I have helped The Tide before, a few years back, at their table at Uprise. Third, Becky and Don have known me since I was 4 years old, it felt natural to take up a job alongside of them. It has been a blessing and a joy to be working here.
