The Rev. David Aja-Sigmon has been serving Fourth Avenue Presbyterian Church since 2005.  Originally from North Carolina's Blue Ridge Mountains, his life and call have led him to Guatemala (serving as a Young Adult Volunteer), the southside of Chicago (Morgan Park Presbyterian Church), and Chicago's famous Michigan Avenue (Fourth Presbyterian Church of Chicago) before joining us here in Brooklyn.  David is a graduate of McCormick Theological Seminary.

Rosemarie Napol is entering her seventh year at Fourth Avenue Presbyterian Church.  She is presently serving as a Pastoral Resident.  She is a candidate for ordination within the Presbytery of New York City.  Rosemarie volunteers at Beth Israel Medical Center and NYU as a chaplain.  This child of the city has a church experience as varied as it is rich; she has been a part of the Roman Catholic Church and the Metropolitan Community Church among others.  Rosemarie is a graduate of New York Theological Seminary.

The Rev. Jane Donnelly is the honorably retired Pastor Emerita of the former Bay Ridge United Church, which recently merged with Fourth Avenue Presbyterian Church. Raised Roman Catholic, Jane followed a call to parish ministry in Christian Education and Pastoral Care and beyond that into Hospital Chaplaincy and Pastoral Counseling. She continues her call as an Honorably Retired Presbyterian Minister. Jane is a graduate of Immaculate Conception Seminary School of Theology at Seton Hall University and completed additional work at New York Theological Seminary.
