Andy Paul

Public Relations Representative, Georgia EMC

In recent years, Salem Baptist has undergone several staffing changes. In 2022, we transitioned from two full-time staff (a senior pastor and an associate pastor handling youth and children) to one full-time staff (a senior pastor) and three potential part-time roles (ministry assistant, youth minister, and children’s minister). These four roles will handle an increased load, as the senior pastor can delegate some secretarial work to the ministry assistant, and two individuals will each focus on an individual age group. In 2022, I took on the role of part-time Youth Minister. We have decided to pursue hiring two interns to help with the student ministry at Salem. This will be a yearlong commitment, and the interns will become a part of the Salem Baptist Community – actively participating in both Sunday Morning and Wednesday Night ministries.

“My goal is to recruit, retain, and mentor interns for Salem Baptist Youth and Children’s Ministry.”
