Saye Simpson, Youth Director
I am a lifelong Presbyterian. I love the church and I love people. I grew up in Rock Hill, SC and attended Presbyterian College before transferring to and graduating from The Citadel. I have also spent the last few years at First Scots volunteering with the youth and being a part of several other groups. I enjoy watching sports and cheering on the Bulldogs. My mother has passed her passion of music on to me and I attend several live shows a week. I have a cat that is a terrible roommate, but a good friend. I look forward to getting to know each and every member of this congregation as we move forward — seeking Christ’s call for us together.

Andi Stem, Christian Educator
In 2003, we put roots down in Summerville. While Eric was on active duty and in residency and fellowship, I completed my MBA, worked in human resources and sales, taught evening college and had three children: Kara, Kamryn, and Alex. We also have three dogs, a turtle, a cat, and two horses. Summerville is equidistant between Eric’s hometown of Wilson, NC and my hometown of Charlotte, hence the reason we settled here. Since moving to Summerville I have taught kickboxing classes, started my own business, sing in an acapella women’s ensemble, raise horses, train therapy dogs, and served as an interim youth director for Summerville Presbyterian and Dorchester Presbyterian Churches.
I am thrilled with the opportunity to serve as Christian Education Coordinator. I was led to Dorchester by God and know that pursuing Christian Education is part of His plan for me. I look forward to creating and expanding programs at Dorchester as well as reaching out to the community. I know that God had a large role in securing this position for me. I am blessed with this opportunity and look forward to the future!
