Welcome Pastor Troy!
     Dr.Troy Lesher-Thomas is our new Bridge Interim Pastor at Covenant. Pastor Troy officially begins work on December 1, but he has already met many folks since he served as our supply pastor on Sunday, November 24. He will definitely be hitting the ground running.
     In 1999, Troy came to North Carolina from Virginia where he grew up and attended Virginia Tech followed by seminary in Richmond. Troy came to North Carolina with his spouse Mitzi. Troy and Mitzi have been married for 22 years and have two children, Mackenzie (17) and Andrew (16). Mackenzie will be attending Western Carolina University next Fall and Andrew is making his way through high school but "not quickly enough" by his own admission! Mitzi is an ordained 
teaching elder serving at Cary Presbyterian Church. 
    Troy enjoys being outdoors, reading, playing the guitar and ukulele, laughing, and serving alongside others in the church. He does a lot of work around the house, in the garage working on small engines and bicycles with Andrew, and serving the local community. It seems like there is always an open invitation around the Lesher-Thomas house as friends frequently drop by and hang out. 
    Troy has served congregations in North Carolina, most recently interims at Milner Memorial Presbyterian Church in Raleigh and Mount Olive Presbyterian Church in Mount Olive. Troy's doctorate has served him well in interim ministry as his work focused on leadership development and family systems theory. Troy will be a Co-Moderator of the Commission on Ministry for New Hope Presbytery starting in January 2020.
Welcome 2020! May the peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Happy New Year!!
New Bible Study Begins January 7th at 10 a.m.
Join Pastor Troy in the Session meeting room across from the church office as we begin a new Bible study focusing on Thessalonians. Bring your favorite Bible or use one of ours and join us.
