Our Church Leadership (The Vestry and Staff)

Our Church thrives because of the energy and style of the people who are a part of our leadership.  Here are a few of the people that make our church community special:

Sudy Dressler 

Raised a Dressler SudyPresbyterian, Sudy began attending the Episcopal Church in college. When she and her husband moved to York, we took an active part in Good Shepherd. Some of my activities were: teaching Sunday School; painting Sunday School rooms; volunteering on a mission trip; ECW; Vestry member; Vestry Clerk; coffee hour hostess; and art show worker. I am so happy for our church to have new vision from a man, Bill Greeley, who is creative but also realistic about what our future can hold and who is willing to give it a try. I would like to support him and his vision and see what we can do.


 

Susan Ferguson  Susan Ferguson

I grew up in York and was a member of Beth Shiloh Presbyterian Church. I moved to Alabama in 1994 and began attending the Episcopal Church. During my time there, I was an active church member, serving several years as Vestry Clerk and usher. I also participated on a church garden committee that provided vegetables for low income families. Professionally, I worked in social services and administration in retirement and skilled nursing facilities, so I often assisted elderly church members with long term care planning. I returned to York in 2014 to marry Tracy Ferguson III and joined Good Shepherd in 2015.

 

 

Jordan GableJordan Gable  

While I have not previously served our church in any official role, my wife and I have enjoyed volunteering for several events including Summerfest; Art, Blue and Q; and First Tuesday Taize dinners.  I grew up a member of Tirzah Presbyterian (USA) where my grandfather was a minister. The church was a large part of my life, allowing me to closely observe various church responsibilities. I attended Clemson University, graduating with a degree in forestry and now serve as a consulting forester for Milliken Forestry Company. In 2012, my wife and I were wed at Trinity United Methodist, where we attended occasionally. We joined Good Shepherd in 2017 after finally finding somewhere we feel at home. We are looking forward to being a part of the Good Shepherd’s future.
