Current Ministries Through Past Experiences
On Friday night the SMRM dorm brought in three generations of SMRM volunteers that once worshipped and learned in that same living space years before. The 2014 staff welcomed Sherry Cothran-Woolsey, a Methodist pastor and musician serving in Nashville, and her husband Patrick. Sherry served as a summer missionary in the 1980s but connected deeply with Tracy Hartman, the current house parent of Virginia who is a professor at the Baptist Theological Seminary in Richmond who served on staff on the 1970s. One speaks through written teaching, the other through song, but both women are passionate about promoting the stories of courageous women in the Bible to in turn empower modern day women to have their own voices heard. These women are part of SMRM’s history but continue to shape the present and future of our organization through their insight and depth.
