Office Staff | University Baptist Church
Desa Foster is the Administrative Assistant at University Baptist Church, but she likes to think of herself as “The Director of First Impressions.” When people visit or call the church office for directions, information, spiritual guidance or assistance, Desa is often the first representative of UBC they encounter. It is important to her to reflect God’s grace through her interactions with them.
Desa’s duties include providing administrative support to the ministerial staff, preparing bulletins for the Sunday service and all special occasions, assisting with weddings held in the church, answering phones and greeting visitors, updating the church calendar, managing special projects such as Church Work Day, assisting in organizing activities, and overseeing the building administration including maintenance and supplies, custodial staff and building users.
Desa also works with a non-profit organization in Fairfax County that serves the needs of individuals with intellectual and developmental delays. She is working on getting a bachelor’s degree in nursing. Desa has been on the staff at UBC for eight years. She has one son. Desa’s hobbies include loving others, sharing God’s word, cooking, dancing, traveling, spending time with loved ones and just having some plain old fun! She is passionate about life and justice and believes every person on earth should be loved and be free.
