{#Giving Tuesday} Day 29: Carl Presley

Meet Carl Presley of the North Georgia Annual Conference! (To go ahead and answer the question we know you're subconsciously asking, yes, he is pretty sure that he is distantly related to Elvis!)

We think Carl has one of the coolest jobs ever: he volunteers as one of the chaplains at the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta. The Interfaith Airport Chaplaincy provides a multicultural ministry in the world's busiest airport. The Atrium Chapel provides a sanctuary for passengers, visitors, and airport and airline employees of all faiths for prayer and meditation. We have so many volunteers here in the Southeast Jurisdiction who travel through this airport each year, and we love knowing that Carl is there to provide spiritual support to any of the 95 million travelers who use this airport annually.

Additionally, Carl donates his time and talents to serve on our Board of Directors as our treasurer. Having someone who is so passionate about ministry work with us means the world to us, and we are so grateful for all he does!

We are so close to #GivingTuesday! It begins at midnight THIS Tuesday! We hope you have been prayerfully considering a donation to UMVIM, SEJ so we can continue our ministry of educating and equipping short-term volunteers. Making a donation is so simple! Just click here to donate through the United Methodist Advance to Project #901875. The General Board of Global Ministries will then match each person's donation up to $2,500, with a $25,000 max per project, totaling $1 millions dollars in donations overall to United Methodist Advance Projects. Unite with other United Methodists this Advent season and be part of this global initiative to rethink how we spend during the holidays.
