Alison is our Director of Student and Family Ministries.   Ali was raised locally in Palmyra and attended Fluvanna County Schools. Her two sisters and their mother, Ginny Fields,   began attending Beaver Dam Baptist when Ali was eight years old.  It was at Beaver Dam that Ali took part in the youth program which inspired her to further pursue her life in Christ.   Ali graduated from the University of Virginia with a B.A. Psychology. During her time at UVA, Ali married Brock Marks and had her first son, Gunner. Two years later, she had her son, Uriah. She enjoys spending time with her family in the great outdoors.  Ali

served as youth pastor at St.-Andrew's-by-the-Sea UMC in San Clemente, CA in 2009 and then at Oakland Baptist Church in Gum Spring, VA from 2010 to 2015.  Ali has a passion for working with youth and considers herself immensely blessed to do so.




Madeleine became our Director of Music in 2019.  She moved to Virginia from California in 2009 and started playing and singing in church.  Madeleine attended local Fluvanna schools and recently received her certification in website technologies from PVCC.  She currently serves as the accompanist for Fluvanna High School and Middle School and works as an Office Assistant at Michie Tavern.  In her free time, Madeleine enjoys freelance writing, classic literature, and sci-fi.  She loves to swim and will jump at any chance to do so! Madeleine lives with her family and her beloved cat, Shadowfax.  One of her greatest joys is singing in the PVCC choir on Monday nights.





Sharon has been our Administrative Assistant since 2014.  She grew up locally and holds degrees from Virginia Tech.  Sharon has been an engineer, an agricultural researcher, a preschool teacher, an elementary school tutor, and a full-time mom.  She and her husband, David, have been married since 1994.  They have two amazing children, Josiah and Grace Hannah. Their family is actively involved in another local church where Sharon and David serve primarily in the areas of youth ministry, discipleship, and administration.  Sharon enjoys being a part of two dynamic church bodies and helping each reach out in the name of Christ.
