Rhonda McMahan

Kids Pastor

Rhonda likes to explore new towns, watch Food Network, ride her bike, and drink super yummy coffee. Her deepest passion is to see children and families fall so in love with Jesus that their homes and lives are transformed by the Gospel. When Rhonda is not here at Sugar Hill Church leading our Kids Ministry, you can find her spending time with her family back in South Carolina! And yes… She is a Clemson fan!

Joe Wells

Elementary Pastor

Joe, or Mr. Joe as the kids know him, is truly a pied piper of children.

He and his wife Christy have three children (Amber, Hope and Hunter) and he loves spending time with family outdoors fishing, camping, and hiking. Joe likes to eat at Red Lobster, Captain D’s and anything Italian. When Joe isn’t with a bunch of grade-school kids, he’s pulling for The Dallas Cowboys or The Georgia Bulldogs. Joe is from Weatherford, TX but has been a Georgia Boy since he was seven years old…probably time to give up on the Cowboys!

Laura Menesses

Kids Ministry Assistant

Laura joined our team in January 2019. As the Kids Ministry Assistant, Laura does anything and everything needed to make Sunday programming, events, childcare, and all things Kids Ministry happen. She has a heart for the details and the little things that help Kids Ministry run smoothly. Her husband, Mauricio, also serves on staff as the Missions Pastor. They met in Mexico on a mission trip and spent five years in Mexico serving as missionaries in the place where God brought them together. She has 4 children and spends most of her time attempting to keep up with them. In her spare time, Laura enjoys reading anything she can get her hands on, watching movies, drinking as much coffee as possible, and taking long, quiet leisurely walks through Barnes and Noble.
