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!

Allison Pinckley

Kids Ministry Assistant/Sunday AM Coordinator

Allison and her family have attended Sugar Hill Church since moving to Georgia in 2016. She has been married to her husband, Paul, since 2009, and they have three children, Tripp, Cooper, and Maggie. Allison has served in SHC Moms and Kids Ministry during her time at SHC. Allison has a heart for families, and she loves to help cultivate opportunities for families to grow in their relationships with each other and with God. Her hope is to be a strong support to all who serve in Kids Ministry, and partner with them as we serve families in our church and community!

Kids Ministry Events Coordinator

Amanda serves as the Kids Ministry Events Coordinator at SHC. She and her husband, Michael, have attended Sugar Hill Church since 2004. Now, with 3 boys – Caleb, Silas, and Nathan, they attend and serve together in several on campus ministries. Amanda finds great joy in bringing families together for fun and fellowship, and she is super excited to be on the team here in Kids Ministry as Events Coordinator. Whenever possible, Amanda is spending time with her husband and kiddos at the ball-field, in the mountains, or playing a game at the kitchen table. Her goal as Special Events Coordinator is to create environments for families in the church and community to come together, build relationships, and have fun!
