DOOR is pleased to announce that Chad Wright Pittman has been hired as the DOOR Atlanta City Director. Chad will join Justin Chambers, National Recruitment Associate and Atlanta Assistant City Director, to run DOOR’s programming in the city.
Chad describes himself as a serial optimist, husband, musician, artist, and theologian who grew up in Knoxville, TN. He received his BM in Music Education at Middle Tennessee State University in 2010, and worked as Youth Ministry Director at First Presbyterian Church of Murfreesboro (TN) during his time there. He spent a year with the DOOR program in Denver and then a year with the YAV program in New Orleans where he gained experience in social work and chaplaincy. Through those experiences and in his time at Columbia Theological Seminary in Atlanta, Chad has discovered a deep passion for empowering people to connect their faith, gifts and passions with service and love for the community. A candidate for ordination in the PCUSA and recent MDiv graduate from Columbia Theological Seminary, he and his wife Lauren are learning to love the uniqueness of Atlanta and hope you’ll visit and catch a glimpse of the beautiful things God is doing here!
DOOR looks forward to having Chad and his passion for the church and Atlanta join the staff team on July 5, 2016.
