Erika Funk is a California girl despite having lived in Pensacola, Philadelphia and now Charlotte. Her craftiness comes from her mother and her bad eyesight from her dad. She currently serves as the Associate Pastor for Mission at First Presbyterian Church, Charlotte and has recently become a foster mom. Hot cups of tea, Joss Whedon and bold acts of justice are what keep the gleam in her eyes.
Emily Kienker is the Assistant Director of Outdoor Ministries and Church Relations for Trinity Presbytery. She is a native of Blythewood, South Carolina and a graduate of Clemson University. She enjoys all things camp, graphic design, and corny jokes.
BethThaxton is a 2005 graduate of Presbyterian College and serves as Director of Youth Ministries and Christian Education at First Presbyterian Church in Raleigh, NC. She loves music, photography, and spending time with her husband and two small children
Darci McKinnon loves to laugh, have fun, be crazy and create art with non-traditional objects (and just about anything to do with fabric, fiber, textiles, color & dye). She has taught courses in surface design, textile dying and creating original works of Art for the last 18 years. She has led music, art classes, retreats and workshops throughout FL, KY, NC, OH, PA, SC, VA & WV. Darci lives in Beckley, West Virginia with her husband John, daughter Aidan, son Ian and dog Barclay. She loves to read, sew, knit, sing and try anything once! (well almost anything)
