Clay Morrison - Associate Rector for Youth Ministry
Clay is always up for a deep theological conversation, and he plays a mean violin—occasionally at the same time. As Clay develops our youth ministry, he takes teenagers and their faith seriously. He does not take himself seriously. It’s a great combination.

Kat’s the one who keeps Restoration’s proverbial trains running on time. (If she were in charge of Metro, those trains would probably run on time, too.) She also adds a little Hawaii sunshine and a lot of Diet Coke to the Restoration staff team. Get to know Kat »
