Rev. Stephanie Bishop, Interim/Transitional Pastor
My seminary journey began when I answered God’s call on my life in 2014and enrolled at Columbia Theological, graduating in 2017. I come to you beginning my fifth year in pastoral ministry and just finishing my first transitional role at a small, historic church in Lawrenceville, GA. Prior to my time at Fairview, I led the congregation of Smyrna Presbyterian in Conyers,GA, another church steeped in history in the Greater Atlanta Presbytery. I am eager to be a part of a place with a newer beginning and learning the ropes of Cherokee Presbytery.
Gloria Melton, Office Administrator
On graduating from high school, Gloria started a career in banking. After 25 years, she retired from banking to become a stay-at-home mom until both children were in elementary school. She then returned to work as a Paraprofessional teacher at an elementary school for the next 18 years. After being retired again for 3 years, she decided it was time to pursue a part time career. She became the Administrative Assistant to Light of Hope in March of 2022 and has enjoyed using her gifts of secretarial and organizational skills for God’s kingdom.
Tiffany Peoples, Director of Music & Worship Arts
Tiffany's parents (Howard and Sandra Nealy) noticed she could identify harmonies and sing various parts of music at the age of five. Her father, a profound organist, sing with her mother, a distinguished vocalist, began to train little Tiffany in church. From her start at Grace Lutheran School (Queens, NY) to her higher education at Norfolk State University (Norfolk, VA) and Georgia State University (Atlanta, GA), her focus on Choral Music, knack for choir development, and vocal training have turned her hobby into a profession.
She is a member of the gospel recording group 4LOVE, which consists of four talented, saved, and anointed young women who travel throughout the United States and abroad ministering the gospel through their musical gifts.
Tiffany credits God for the gifts and talents she loves to share. With her extensive experience in teaching and performing all genres of music, she loves to learn more and welcomes new ideas and challenges.
