Louise Halsey

Office Administrator

Louise Halsey is the hub of activity and interaction at First Church. Her title is Office Administrator and Assistant to the Senior Minister, and in that position she creates a calm, productive and welcoming center. This is a major feat given the level of detail that she efficiently manages. She was a church member before she left the corporate world to join the First Church staff in 2008. Answering the interesting and not-so-interesting phone calls that come into the church is part of the day-to-day surprise of her job.

Her relationships are central to her: her husband Jim, her two daughters, her circle of relatives as well as her church community. She has a Turkish AFS family and a Vietnamese family as well.

Her advice to the seeker? “Find a church community where you feel the love!”
