We are continuing our series on Getting to Know your church leaders a little bit better. Read along to learn more about Marcy Bryant, who serves as our communications coordinator and on the Deacon Council. 

Where were you born, and do you still consider that home, or somewhere else?

I was born in Chattanooga, Tn. but have been in the East Mountains for 28 years. The MCC community is what I consider home. 

What did you want to be when you grew up – and is that still a dream?

I wanted to be an architect, but my favorite job to date has been mom. 

What or who was your earliest spiritual influence?

I was blessed to grow up in a Christian home and receive a Christian education. If the church doors were open, we were there. My grandparents, Mama and Daddy Wilson, were a great spiritual influence because they loved and served the Lord more faithfully than anyone else I’ve known. 

How and when did Christ call you to Himself?

I remember “asking Jesus into my heart” when I was seven years old at a missions conference at our church. I really began to dedicate my life to the Lord in my early 20s. 

What is a scripture you often read or share with others?

Hebrews 12:1-2: Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. 

What is a special answered prayer you’ve received from the Lord?

I will forever be grateful for the way the Lord carried us through Shannon’s cancer treatment and healing.  

What is a blessing and what is a challenge in serving at the church?

I wear a few hats at Mountain Christian and I honestly love it all. I enjoy being able to see how God is working in so many ministries, and to be a part of it so I don’t miss out on anything! The challenge is knowing there is always more I could be doing.

What are your hobbies and how did you get into them?

I love to hike - especially with family and friends. We really got serious about it during COVID when we couldn’t go to many other places. I also love to travel, read, play pickleball and go out to dinner (is that a hobby?).

What is your favorite family tradition?

During the Christmas season we do something deliberately, just the four of us in our immediate family. Sometimes it’s the River of Lights and sometimes it’s going to dinner and a movie - but I love how we slow down and make time to enjoy being together in a very busy season. 

How do you enjoy spending a day off?

It usually includes hiking or pickleball and going out to eat with friends. 

What is the perfect meal?

Pizza or BBQ. I love both. 

Who or what never fails to make you laugh? 

Shannon - he’s very witty and always knows how to lift my spirits. 

We asked Shannon: 

What is your favorite trait of Marcy's?
It is honestly hard to pick just one, but the level of kindness and compassion that she has for myself and others always amazes me.
What does Marcy do that can always make you smile?
I love watching her play pickleball. She enjoys it so much and it is fun to watch.
