As a committed follower of Jesus Christ, it is my passion to help others grow in their faith and share God’s love. This passion is what clarifies my sense of God’s vision for the people I serve.

My professional ministry began in 1991 with the people of New Hannover Presbyterian Church in Mechanicville, VA, where I served in a part time youth ministry role while I was attending Union Theological Seminary in Richmond, VA. After graduation, I took a full-time position with First Presbyterian Church in Bristol, TN where I served in the role of Director of Youth Ministry and Christian Education. In 1997, we moved to First Presbyterian Church in Morristown, TN, where I again served in the role of Director of Youth Ministry and Christian Education. During my service with Morristown I completed the additional education requirements to become a “Certified Christian Educator”. Having served the people of Morristown through a pastoral transition, my sense of call began to change and I felt led to a ministry of Word and Sacrament. I was ordained by the PCUSA in 2003 and began my service to First Presbyterian Church in Jefferson City, TN, as Pastor. While serving the people of Jefferson City I earned a Doctor of Ministry degree from Columbia Theological Seminary in 2009. In 2011, my family and I moved to Lilburn, GA, to accept the position of Pastor/Head of Staff at Good Shepherd Presbyterian Church.

On the personal side, I have been blessed with a wonderful wife, Carolyn, and three incredible daughters: Morgan, Amanda and Hannah. In my spare time, I enjoy time with my family, reading, and refurbishing antique cars

Katie Patrick is a former teacher with 10 years of experience working with students in pre-k through 8th grade. She graduated with honors from The University of Georgia with a degree in early childhood education. Outside the realm of classroom instruction, she has experience with summer camp, after school care programs, and technology education. Katie is thrilled to be the new Director of Good Shepherd Preschool after taking some time off to stay home with her two children, Eleanor and Benjamin. She has been married for 9 years to her husband, Michael, who is an aviation mechanic. In her free time, she likes to read, go camping, and spend time with her family on the lake.

Eric Etheridge received his early education in the public school system in Selma, Alabama and the Bachelor of Science degree from Alabama A&M University in Huntsville, Alabama with a major in Music Education. His theological education was completed at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in South Hamilton, Massachusetts where he earned a Master of Arts in Religion degree with a concentration in Pastoral Ministry. He is currently a candidate for the Doctor of Ministry in Biblical Worship at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. Eric joined the staff of Good Shepherd Presbyterian Church in December of 2021.

At the top of Eric’s credits and accomplishments lies the love of his wife the former Barbara G. Smith. He is very proud of his wife and cherishes the support she has shown him in all of his endeavors. Eric’s philosophy of life is “Everyone has a purpose in life and life is not fulfilled until we find that purpose”

Born in Rabun County, GA, I moved to Doraville at a very young age. I attended Georgia State University.  In my spare time, I enjoy tennis, reading and spending time with my family in the great outdoors. I currently live in Loganville with my husband and two children.

I have been with Good Shepherd since March of 2015.

I was born and raised in south Georgia, and after marrying, lived in Rome, GA, for over forty years until my husband’s passing in 2015. I moved to Lilburn and live with my son, Jesse, and daughter, Laura. I graduated from Albany Junior College and Berry College, and have worked in churches in both a financial and administrative capacity for over 22 years. I recently joined the staff of GSPC in the role as Full Charge Bookkeeper. I enjoy reading and spending time with my grumpy 16 year old poodle.
