After a busy and exciting summer, we can take the time to introduce our newest staff members. However, these two new team members are familiar faces around our office and warehouse!

Sara Teichmiller, a senior at UAB, finished her summer internship with CSM and decided to stay as part of the team part-time. As an intern, Sara focused on volunteer experience and worked directly with our construction team. She will continue to work with volunteers, manage construction projects, and also lead our social media communications.

“I had very little perspective concerning Birmingham as a whole. The internship program at CSM opened my eyes to both the need and the beauty of Birmingham,” Sara said. “This opportunity has empowered me to ask hard questions, invest in developing a Kingdom-minded worldview, and grow intentional relationships with people different from myself.”

Katy Sexton began volunteering with CSM in March 2020, and she quickly became an essential part of our organization. Katy has experience in project management from working with Lovelady Center. She wanted to keep her office skills sharp and continue to build deeper relationships with other people, so she agreed to join our staff part-time. In this role, she will focus on donor management, construction management and support our overall operations.

“My previous work experience has made me more loving and accepting of others, so I am excited to meet new people and grow stronger in my relationships with them, as well as in my relationship with Christ,” Katy said.

Both Katy and Sara are incredible leaders inside and outside of our offices; with their help throughout our administration, communications, and construction teams; we are confident that our mission within CSM and relationships with partners will continue to thrive.

We are so thankful for every volunteer and staff member who is so eager to reach out to their communities and share the love of Jesus Christ. It is so exciting to have Katy and Sara officially join our team!
