Sean P. Williams joined the staff of FBC in August 2016 as the Children and Youth Ministry Coordinator. He is excited to serve a church that welcomes, accepts and cares for all people, and feels blessed to be able to help the children, youth, and families of this community discover the many ways God is calling us to be in relationship with our neighbors, both right here and around the world.
Sean has served as a youth minister/director since 2000, in United Methodist and Presbyterian (USA) churches in Texas, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and South Carolina. He is passionate about working in the local church, and loves building and supporting teams, long range planning & visioning, connecting/communicating in creative ways, engaging children and youth in worship & arts, and creating opportunities for individuals and groups to know & support their communities. Sean has also worked as a staff consultant, data specialist, and social media director for Ministry Architects since 2013, which is a company that partners with churches around the world to develop strategic plans and build sustainable ministries.
Sean’s wife, Jenn, is an Assistant Professor in the Religious Studies department at Linfield College, and they moved to McMinnville with their 7 year old son, Parker, and 4 year old daughter, Sybil, in August of 2016. His whole family feels connected and committed to FBC and loves living in this part of Oregon and the Pacific Northwest. They are looking forward to many years here, settling in to this community, building deep, lasting relationships with wonderful people, and exploring this amazing part of the country.
