Rev. Marsha Mitchiner

Growing up in middle Georgia,  Marsha and her family were active members of their church. She became disillusioned in her teen years when the actions and answers to her questions posed to the Minister and other denomination leadership/followers were not in agreement with the Christian messages she had been taught. She left religious institutions but felt a need to find a community of individuals seeking answers without dogma. She immediately felt she had found her home when she came to First E in 1980. She became an active member,  joined the Ministerial Training Program with Rev. Lanier Clance, and was ordained by First E in 1993. She served with Rev. Clance as Associate Minister until his retirement in 2000 and now serves as Fellowship Minister. Marsha believes in individual truth, responsibilty and the power of community.
