Elaine Binkley
Lay Leader & Finance Committee Representative

I was raised in Knoxville, TN but have lived most of my adult life in the Atlanta area and also Maryland (DC area). Before retiring in December 2016, I was with the Federal Government for 34 years as an analyst dealing with administrative and personnel issues. I was raised Methodist (in fact, my great, great grandfather was a circuit rider); however, I fell away as a teenager. God relentlessly pursued me and after a long church hunt, I found Decatur First and became a member in June 2013. I've been a lay leader since 2016 and have been on several teams including the Administrative Board (soon to be Story Keepers) and the Finance and Nominations Committees. I've been involved in the Strategic Spiritual Journey from the start as a member of the SSJ Lead Team, a Triplet organizer and a member of the Decatur Reimagined and Realized Team.
