Steven Dykes

My wife and I transferred our membership from All Saints, Atlanta to Saint Andrew’s in 2016. We visited many area Episcopal Churches, but nothing really clicked. When we visited Saint Andrew’s, we entered the sanctuary, knelt for a few moments of prayer and introspection and immediately felt the palpable presence of God.

I was confirmed at The Cathedral Church of the Advent in the early 90s. I was first exposed to the liturgy when I was hired as a staff singer and quickly fell in love with the history, liturgy, tradition and music. In other words, I was hooked!

I am presently employed by The Hillman Group as a manufacturer’s representative in Home Improvement stores. I am a Veteran, having served on active duty in the United States Air Force in the 1980s. Following the attack on the World Trade Center in 2001, I was compelled to re-enlist after a 17 ½ year break in service. My term of service ended in December 2007.

I studied Music at Richland College, North Texas State University and Huntingdon College. My experience studying Choral Conducting with Jim Henderson provided several opportunities to utilize those skills as Director of Choral Activities at the Base Chapels, RAF Wethersfield UK and as the Choir Director at St. Thomas Episcopal Church, Birmingham, Alabama.

My wife, Robbin, and I have four children and six grandchildren who are scattered throughout the country. Robbin is member of the Saint Andrew’s Daughters of the King chapter. I sing in the Saint Andrew’s Choir, and we are both involved in Adult Formation.

I am honored to have been asked and would welcome the opportunity to serve this congregation. My fervent hope for Saint Andrew’s during this incredible time of transition and transformation is that we continue to grow together as a spiritual community of faith where all are welcomed as family.

Mary Spain

My husband and I joined St. Andrew’s almost four years ago. We have enjoyed worshiping here and getting to know all the wonderful members. We have lived in Peachtree City for 38 years and we raised our two daughters here. I am a retired Fayette County teacher. I taught elementary school for 31 years.

The Prayer Shawl Ministry brought me to St. Andrew’s. I was very impressed with the service and the friendliness of the group that crafts beautiful shawls. It is a tremendous, giving group.

It will be a pleasure to serve on the vestry to help all the ministries of St. Andrew’s.

Mike Williams

Mike has served on the Vestry and as Junior Warden during his many years as a St. Andrew’s member.  In addition he serves as an usher and does a variety of other volunteer work.  His wife Lesley is also a St. Andrew’s member with prior service on the Vestry, membership in Daughters of the King and our children’s programs. Mike and Lesley have two children, Alice and Dylan. Mike is an IT consultant.
