Meet Marcy
M.A.D. Club Program Director

Hello, I'm Marcy Potter. My husband, Wayne , Director of Youth and Family Ministry at the First Presbyterian Church of Elk Rapids, met while in ministry school together in upstate New York. Together we have served in youth ministry in several churches over the last 25 years. We’ve been in Elk Rapids for over 11 years and are deeply committed to this community.

Over the years we’ve worked together my husband and I have served and mentored hundreds of students. We have led youth groups, Sunday school, Bible studies and leadership programs. We have taken trips to youth conferences for spiritual growth and led missions trips where we’ve demonstrated what it means to serve.

In my many years working with young girls I have had many experiences dealing with cases of depression, anxiety, body image issues, abuse, and so on. Today the struggles adolescents have always faced are being amplified by social media culture. As a result, mentoring programs like M.A.D. Club are now needed than ever, even as these programs face a mountain of competition for the time and attention of todays teens.

My passion lies in this pivotal stage of girls lives. These are the years when foundational beliefs about self-worth and character are forged. My mission is clear: to instill values of kindness, integrity, and strength, and, most importantly, to convey the profound message that each girl is meticulously crafted by a loving God for a unique purpose, and is unconditionally loved.


Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have questions, ideas, or need additional information.
