Rev. Sara Maughan graduated from Candler School of Theology in May 2018. Before seminary and during, Glenn Memorial UMC in Atlanta was her and her family’s home church. Because of the mentorship of the female clergy and the supportive children’s ministry at Glenn, Sara chose to pursue the deacon path and focus on children and families in her own ministry. Supporting and building a ministry of love, faith, and service for children and families is her passion, because it was a gift freely offered to her and her family.
Since graduating from Candler, Sara has served as a local pastor in North Georgia and as the Children and Youth Minister at Inman Park UMC. She was commissioned as a Deacon in June of 2021 and joined the Children’s Ministry team at Northside UMC in August of 2021.

And, Austin, 10, is in the fifth grade at F.Ave. Elementary in Decatur. In her free time, Sara loves hanging out with her family and pets, eating good food, sleeping and laughing.
