  • Rebecca Brinson - Director of Music

    Rebecca Brinson lives in Coolidge, GA with her husband Jack, daughter Josephine, a few dogs, chickens, a horse, and a donkey. Rebecca was born and raised in Minneapolis, MN and moved to Georgia in 2011. Her father started her very young in music performance: by the age of 4 she was singing in front of her church and playing piano.

    She received both her Bachelors and Masters degrees in Vocal Performance from the University of Minnesota, and after, went to Florida State University to pursue her post-graduate studies in Opera Performance. She has worked for many years with choirs, working as section leader, soloist, accompanist, and director. Rebecca has taught private voice and piano lessons on and off for the last twenty years where she enjoyed the one-on-one connection with her students. As a choir director she enjoys the challenge of keeping a group of people engaged and working to not only better themselves, but also working together towards excellence in musical performance for the benefit of making a more worshipful experience for everyone in the congregation.

  • Penny Alligood - Administrative Assistant

    Penny Alligood graduated from Forest Park High School -- just south of Atlanta -- in 1993. After introductory positions at Jim Wood & Assoc. PR firm, the Clayton County Chamber of Commerce and The Colonnade newspaper at Georgia College in Milledgeville, she moved to Athens and pursued a BA in English Literature.
    The religion and philosophy courses were too tempting to resist, but Penny finally followed motherly advice and applied for and was offered a position at a statewide economic development magazine called Georgia Trend. So she was not, after all, destined for a career as a full time student. And she finally graduated from the University of Georgia summa cum laude in 1998.
    Working her way up from Editorial Assistant, Penny spent the majority of her 23-year-career in publishing as Georgia Trend magazine’s Creative Director. That role afforded her the opportunity to meet businesspeople, politicians and rising stars throughout Georgia. Penny managed the magazine design and production process, as well as, the freelance photographers and designers. She finally left the magazine business behind in December 2019 and moved from Atlanta to Moultrie.
    Penny’s family has deep roots in Colquitt County but this is her first opportunity to settle in Moultrie. With lots of family nearby and an ever-growing love for the community and the congregation of Moultrie First Presbyterian, Penny has found a new home in more ways than one.

Faye is married to Brady Brock, retired school administrator. They have two sons, Matthew and Jason. Faye believes that God allowed her to get the job at First Presbyterian Church because she feels that she has found a place where she can use God's gifts to her. She says that this is not a job, but a pleasure, because of the love and warmth from the staff and the congregation. Her responsibilities here are to plan the WATCH menus, oversee the preparation of the meals, and supervise the kitchen staff, nursery staff, and the housekeeping staff.
