South Carolina Woman’s Missionary Union recently announced that Lauren Morris and Hannah Smith will join the staff. Morris will serve as student consultant and Smith will serve as adult consultant. They will join the staff Feb, 27.
Morris joins the team with six years of missions experience with the International Mission Board and North American Mission Board. She graduated from North Greenville University with a bachelor of arts in Christian studies and a master of divinity in missiology from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary.
“Lauren is incredibly talented in developing effective strategies to engage students and their leaders with opportunities to grow in their hearts for the nations and exercise what it means to live on mission tangibly,” South Carolina WMU noted. “One fun fact is that Lauren created a missions simulation escape room at her church! The IMB heard about it and made a video for sharing with other churches.”
Smith is originally from Ashland, Alabama. She has a bachelor of science degree in elementary education from Jacksonville State University and a master of divinity in Christian education from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.
“Hannah has ministry experience in camp ministry, children’s ministry, women’s ministry, international missions and church planting,” the organization said. “In her spare time, she enjoys reading, baking, finding new coffee shops to visit and spending time outdoors. A fun fact about Smith is that she loves iced coffee, even when it’s freezing cold outside.”
