Sara Gillingham

Sara is originally from Portland Maine. Her favorite things include fall colors, chocolate and peanut butter, the sun, and discussing how much water everyone has had to drink in a day. She came to Georgia to live her dream of being a southern bell and becoming Atlanta United’s #1 fan. She joined Holy Spirit after serving as a Life teen missionary and says it’s been one of the greatest blessings in her life. Along the way of the beautiful adventure that is living with Christ, she is a big fan of following the models of St. John Paul II, St. Joseph, and St. Jude. Outside of work you can probably find Sara eating a taco, closing another ring on her Apple Watch, or working on her memoir titled, “A Series of Awkward Events: The Life of Sara Gillingham.”
