Caitlin has been worshipping at Hot Metal since 2004 and participated in the very first Apprenticeship group. Over the years, she has served in a number of significant ways, including as a member of the original Task Force (which later became the Council) for over six years; leading the creative arts ministry with Chris Proud; and by coordinating our junior and senior high youth group. She completed her M.Div. at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary in 2010.
She will continue to worship at Hot Metal and to serve at Allegheny County Jail as program director for the H.O.P.E. Pod. H.O.P.E. is a faith-based, intensive pre- and post- release program operated by the Foundation of H.O.P.E. Their mission is to provide intensive discipleship, practical resources, and one-on-one mentoring to the men and women incarcerated in the Allegheny County Jail. The participants in the pre-release program live together on the pod, meeting over 130 hours in eight weeks in groups that require full participation, such as parenting, life skills, drug and alcohol, and more.
