The Rev. Martha Sterne
Martha Sterne began her ordained life here at All Saints’ twenty-eight summers ago working with a variety of parish ministries touching the poor and marginalized. She was part of the team which guided the evolution of the All Saints’ Winter Night Shelter into Covenant Community, Inc. Its alumni residence, Sterne House, is named in her honor.
She left All Saints’ after almost a decade to become the rector of St. Andrew’s, Maryville, Tennessee, on the edge of the Great Smoky Mountains. A decade later (at the first hint of grandchildren), Martha and her husband Carroll returned to Atlanta and she served on the staff of Holy Innocents’ until 2014.
She grew up in Mississippi where she first experienced the power of stories getting passed around and down through generations. She did her undergraduate work at Vanderbilt University and received a Masters of Divinity from Candler School of Theology, Emory University. She also holds a Masters in Community Counseling from Georgia State University.
She has written four books including Juelz which was created with the alumni of the Covenant Community. Her abiding pleasure is to help people pay attention to the living and storied presence of God in each of us.
