Sarah Stonesifer

Executive Council

I am a nominee for Executive Council as part of The Episcopal Church's General Convention 2018. I am ready to serve in this role as the Church envisions its future and how to craft 21st century disciples and faith leaders. You might be asking yourself why a 31-year old wants to undertake a 6-year commitment.

I believe in the vitality of the Episcopal Church and its values of diversity, inclusion and spreading God's message to the world. With my background in education and experience with digital media for ministry,  I am uniquely qualified to be a part of the conversation, to create connections and form leaders as we enter into #wayoflove.  

I'm ready. Are you?

 

What I Do

A life-long connector and helper, known for sharing information and making lives better through technology. Dedicated to cultivating leadership within the best systems.

Yoga

Sarah discovered yoga and fell in love with the mindful movements amid a busy life. On the mat, you will be taken through a flowing practice grounded in sequencing, breath, and fun! Classes are intermingled with humor while creating space for exploration and joy. In 2015, She completed her 200 hour training at the Anthony Bowen YMCA in DC and her 20-hour YoKid certification.  After leaving class, Sarah hopes that you will have found movements that connect with your own body, while also cultivating a supportive community with those around you.
