In October of 2020, we welcomed Christal Pearson to the staff of Second Presbyterian Church as Engagement Coordinator. In this part-time position, she helps members and visitors discover their interests and find ways to explore their faith through meaningful involvement in the church. The aim of this role is to further our church’s efforts to create a congregational family that works together in support of each other and in the mission of the church: “Finding direction by following Jesus.”
Christal has been a member of Second Presbyterian Church since 2008, and she currently teaches Confirmation and has served on the Session and chaired the Preschool Committee. She is a Hollins University graduate and holds a Bachelor of Arts in English. A former teacher with Roanoke County Schools, Christal is passionate about literacy and education, and continues to work with students as an English tutor. She loves Second Presbyterian and is excited to help people feel welcome and at home here. Christal lives in Roanoke with her husband Darin, daughter Lila, and their dog Sam.
