Welcome Francella Perryman, Social Justice Coordinator
Francella Perryman comes to us originally from Saint Louis, Missouri, before moving to Georgia. She has lived in The North Fulton area for nearly 8 years. Francella has a Bachelors of Arts degree from Columbia College in Missouri and a Masters degree in Professional Counseling from Lindenwood University in Saint Charles, Missouri. She brings to us over 10 years of experience working with individuals and families in the Counseling Arena.
Francella was recently employed by Mount Pisgah UMC in Johns Creek, for 5 years as their Director of Local Outreach. During this time period Francella received numerous awards and accolades such as Habitat for Humanity “Points of Lights Volunteer of the Year Award (2018), Fulton County’s Volunteer of the Year Award (2016) and Every Woman Works “Gold Star Partner Extraordinaire Award (2015) to name a few. Francella’s dedication to the community and serving those in need has always been a priority in her life.
When asked why the work of Social Justice interests her, she explains “We are called to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves. We are not to withhold good from those who deserve it. Psalms teaches us to defend the cause of the weak…maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed…with that being said the world can be tough to navigate, we must love God and love people the best that we can. Nothing like doing so in a Social Justice Position.”
She shares her excitement in getting in on the groundbreaking changes happening in the UUCA community right now.
Francella resides in Roswell, Georgia with her husband Marquis of 21 years. She has 3 children Ahmad (19) away in College in North Carolina, Nia (17) and Imani (14). She shares that in her spare time she loves live music, good food, attending her children’s track meets, volleyball games and cheering on the world famous Saint Louis Cardinals
