Director of Adult Discipleship
Gina Dawson joined the staff of Faith UMC in March 2004 after being a member for a couple of years. From 2004 to 2019, she was the Director of Christian Education for all ages. In 2020, she became a part-time staff member focused on Adult Discipleship, and added the role of Building Project Coordinator. During 2020 with COVID-19 and the need to move to online worship, Gina took on the role of Online Worship Production & Coordinator.
She holds a B.S. degree in Business & Management from the University of Maryland University College and a MBA from the University of Maryland. Prior to joining Faith, she spent many years in accounting, finance, and process design/redesign.
As a lifelong student, Gina believes you never stop learning and growing. And as disciples of Christ, we never graduate but are constantly being shaped and formed by our Creator. After several years of finally focusing on her spiritual life as a Christian, she felt called to make a significant career change and take a chance on this position. It’s been challenging, insightful, enlightening, joyful, and crazy, and it’s truly been an amazing ride as God continues to mold and shape her (and her ministry).
Gina loves to spend time with her family. She also enjoys reading, creative pursuits (graphic & web design, video production), and playing Dungeons & Dragons (a hobby she enjoys with her husband!).
