The Reverend Stephanie Bishop comes to us after serving a congregation in Conyers, GA for the last two and half years. She is a native of Georgia, a graduate of the University of Georgia with an A.B. in English, and she obtained an MDiv from Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, Georgia. She is the mother of two now-grown children: Joel, a freshman at UNG in Watkinsville and Annabel, who just finished her associate degree at the Fashion Institute of Technology in Manhattan and lives in Brooklyn. Stephanie lived in the Athens, Georgia area for 26 years and recently moved to Kirkwood (Atlanta) to be a more involved member of the Greater Atlanta Presbytery.
An avid runner, Stephanie has recently downgraded her training and enjoys more leisurely runs with her little dog several times a week. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle and keeping up with friends and family are important in her life and to her ministry.
Stephanie is excited to begin her first interim position here at Fairview after attending training at the beautiful Zephyr Cove Presbyterian Conference Center at Lake Tahoe this past summer. In addition, she will begin work in January with the Presbytery on the New Church Development Commission. She loves seeing God at work in churches and is thrilled to be involved in new church work-that of these new developments in the Atlanta area and in what lies ahead for Fairview!
