Note from Jody Davis
I have had the pleasure of working with Caroline Wood in many capacities during my time in East Tennessee. From Grace Point Summer Staff, to parish youth ministry, to her work with ESK, Caroline has proven herself to be a generous and thoughtful leader. She has vast institutional knowledge of Grace Point Camp and our Diocesan youth programs, as well as extensive experience in all forms of youth ministry. Most importantly, she knows how to have fun and spread God’s love! I feel confident leaving the program in Caroline’s hands, and I look forward to the excitement and loving-kindness she brings to ETNYouth.
Hi, this is Bishop Brian. Wanted to update you on a new call to the Diocesan staff. Recently, we heard word that Jody Davis has been called to the diocese of West Texas, where he will be running Camp Duncan Park in Colorado. We are pleased and excited, with this new opportunity for Jody. It also allows us to make a call for the Diocese of East Tennessee. I’m pleased to announce that Caroline Wood, has accepted my call to join us, as the Diocesan Youth and Young Adult Coordinator. Caroline is known to our diocese, has been a part of the Grace Point staff for several years, has served as a Youth Minister at St. Stephen’s, has worked at Episcopal School of Knoxville, is known to many of us, and I’m excited that she’ll be joining us in February of 2021. I want to give Caroline also a chance to introduce herself to you as well. So again, continue to keep Jody and Gracie in your prayers, as they make plans to move to Texas and to Colorado, and join me in welcoming Caroline Wood, as our new Diocesan Youth and Young Adult Coordinator.
Hi, I’m Caroline Wood, and I’m so excited to answer the call, to be the Diocesan Youth and Young Adults Coordinator. In my years in Knoxville, I’ve worked at Grace Point Summer Camp, then the Youth Director at St. Stephens, and I’ve worked at the Episcopal School of Knoxville. I’m really looking forward to building on Jody’s good work, and connecting communities through Christ in East Tennessee.
