Our Staff and Session members provide leadership and ministry expertise for our church to live out its mission.
Jill Williams, Associate Pastor for Congregational Care and Mission, spent her childhood in Florida. She made a public profession of faith as a teenager during confirmation in a Methodist church. Jill’s college years were pivotal for her faith, as the reality of God’s presence in her life and in the world were revealed to her through the surprising avenue of sorority. She graduated from Auburn University in Alabama in 1988 with a bachelor’s degree in computer science. Jill’s worked as a systems analyst for Champion Paper. She left her first career in 1992 to follow God’s unexpected call to serve in Huntsville, Ala., leading youth and family ministries. After a decade of full-time youth ministry, Jill attended Fuller Seminary in Pasadena, Calif. She graduated with her master of divinity degree in 2006, then served on the staff at Bel Air Presbyterian in Los Angeles for three years in the area of caring ministries. Jill joined the Covenant staff in 2007. Jill enjoys eating out, is a habitual tea drinker, loves to go on walks, enjoys most outdoor activities, greatly values friendship and family, and takes pleasure in new experiences and travel. She is passionate about things she knows are important to God’s heart; she values people of all ages and loves the diversity of people in our world. Her heart’s desire is to follow Christ faithfully and obediently wherever He leads, and to share God’s love and grace with the people around her.
