 Liam Hooper Liam Hooper, Minister of Welcome and Beyond
(Ministry housed at Parkway)
Liam received his Master of Divinity from Wake Forest School of Divinity in 2015. He has discerned a call to be deeply rooted in community – to work for the building of beloved community with transgender and LGB persons within the church and beyond. Liam centers ministry around welcome, reconciliation and spiritual formation, justice and intersectionality work, and interfaith outreach, as well as consultation and theological reflection with faith groups seeking to welcome and integrate LGBT persons into their communities of faith.

The Neighborhood Nurture Network helps provide nurture and support to our church community. Our congregation is divided into three neighborhoods. Each neighborhood has a leader whose responsibilities include being in touch with their neighborhood and listening for needs. As needs occur, the neighborhood leader elicits support from the congregation. Margaret Morris, Janice Nelligan and Amy Wright are the NNN leaders.
