Erin began her adventure with FPC in August of 2019. Erin is a South Carolina native, but spent a good portion of her years in VA. As a preacher's kid, Erin has been raised in faithful churches and has benefited from their love and spiritual care over the years and across the miles, spanning SC, NC, VA, GA, and FL. 
Erin attended Presbyterian College and graduated in 2006 with a major in Middle Grades Education and minors in Spanish and English. She then spent a year in service with the Presbyterian Church (USA) Young Adult Volunteer Program. She served in Miami with immigrant and migrant families at an after-school and teen outreach program. Little did she know, her call to ministry began in this international city that became her home.
After teaching 8th grade in SC for two years, Erin returned to Miami to coordinate an after-school and outreach center of Branches, Inc. In 2011, she began seminary at Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, GA, graduating in May 2014 with a Master of Divinity. Erin served for 4 years as Associate Pastor of Youth and Outreach in Aiken, SC before coming to Monroe.
Erin is the proud wife of Jeff Morgan and the proud mother of Valerie Morgan. God's love and grace is most evident in Erin's entire extended family and friends and in the opportunity she has to humbly serve in a church leadership role. Erin loves the beach, Latin dancing, traveling, the Spanish language, reading, and being outside with her family.
