My name is Joy Altmann and I have been a member of St. Andrew for 19 years. My husband Tim, our daughter Audrey (24), and son Aidan (13) have enjoyed being a part of this faith community. We have been able to grow through programs like Loaves & Fishes, funeral support, Manna Meals, Mom’s Group, confirmation, Spirit in the Pines, youth groups at every age, and I even served as the Hospitality Minister and part-time receptionist in the early 2000s. I have worked professionally in the corporate retail space for 20+ years and recently made the transition in 2019 to MATTER, a non-profit organization as the Events & Projects Director. I have seen countless changes throughout the years and believe that our future is bright at St. Andrew. I am excited to be able to find ways to help the church grow and thrive for the congregation’s needs. This past year has shined a light on the need for diversity and representation for all communities and St. Andrew is no exception. I am proud of our pastors for recognizing that and for me a minority, I hope to be able to add to that important conversation.
