Rev. Lindsey Solomon Joins The Children’s Home, Guides the Ministry’s Expansion Throughout Eastern Georgia
May 1, 2017 Rev. Lindsey Solomon has always had a passion for equipping the saints for the work of the Lord (Ephesians 4:12) and opening their eyes to the need around them. Appointed by the Bishop and the Cabinet of The North Georgia Conference of The United Methodist Church, Rev. Lindsey Solomon has joined The United Methodist Children’s Home (UMCH) as church engagement manager. Reporting directly to Rev. Dave Allen Grady, director of church relations, Lindsey will lead The Children’s Home mission to restore children and families from trauma through Jesus Christ to congregations throughout eastern Georgia, with special emphasis in the Greater Augusta area. Originally from Woodstock, GA, Lindsey graduated from LaGrange College in 2005 with a BA in Religion. She spent her college summer vacations as a counselor at Camp Glisson. After college, she became a youth minister at Sam Jones United Methodist Church. In 2009, she went on to receive her Masters of Divinity from Candler School of Theology. While in seminary, Lindsey was a youth minister at Mount Pisgah United Methodist Church. Lindsey was commissioned as a Provisional Elder at Annual Conference in 2014 and was appointed to serve at Kennesaw United Methodist Church as an associate pastor. She and her husband, Kris, have three wonderful children and two dogs. Kris and Lindsey joined UMCH in ministry as foster parents in 2015 as they realized that the church has a tremendous responsibility and opportunity to support children and families who are experiencing hardship. At the onset of Lindsey’s appointment to The Children’s Home, she will serve in ministry from the Decatur campus and relocate to Augusta this summer with her family.
