WoC Welcomes New Staff

Week of Compassion is thrilled to welcome Elizabeth Young to our staff.  Elizabeth begins her service as Administrative Assistant this week; we hope you will join us in welcoming her and celebrating her joining our team.

Elizabeth Young is a lifelong Disciple and the daughter of two Disciples ministers.  Her life has been shaped by her experiences with and connection to God, her church, the larger Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) community, and the General Church ministries.  Elizabeth studied English Writing at DePauw University and enjoyed participating in the college mentoring and leadership program.  Since college, Elizabeth has worked in marketing and customer service roles as well as project management.  Though ministry is in her genes with over eleven ministers in her extended family, lay ministry has been Elizabeth’s calling and she enjoys volunteering her time with her local church and the Indiana Region.  She especially loves working with children and youth.   Elizabeth is thrilled to be a part of the ministry of Week of Compassion and to participate in the good it does every day.  She lives in Noblesville, IN with her husband Jeff and two young children, Charlie and Maggie, who keep her very busy and full of joy and laughter.      

Elizabeth is based in our office at the Disciples Center in Indianapolis.  She can be reached at eyoung@woc.disciples.org and (317) 713-2442. 

We give thanks to God for the gifts that she brings to our ministry and look forward to many years together! 

As always, we are grateful to YOU for your ongoing partnership, generosity, and courageous compassion.  Though our staff is small, our church is great.  You are, indeed, the centerpiece of WoC.
