Tracy Rose

Lay Leader, Fresh Expressions Adventurer

Tracy is married to Camala, mother of three daughters, Mimi to four grandchildren, and daughter of Rebecca, who now lives with her. She is currently the Lay Leader at Good Samaritan UMC in Tallahassee, FL, where she began attending in 2015-16, and became a member in 2017. 

Tracy was raised Southern Baptist and along the way fell out of love with the church when she was rejected by the church after coming out as part of the LGBTQIA community. Estranged from the church for about five years, she made her way back to what a relationship with Jesus would look like for her after coming out. Today, Tracy proudly identifies as a queer Christian and has repaired her relationship with the church, in large part because of the church home she's found with the people at Good Samaritan. She also loves the idea of being church to people, specifically the marginalized and those hurt by the church in the ordinary places where Jesus already is—outside the walls of the church building, and as such has fallen in love with the Fresh Expressions movement.

Piper Ramsey-Sumner

Fresh Expressions FL Conference Team, North West District Cultivator

Piper Ramsey-Sumner is an Oklahoma-born, Texas-raised pastor’s kid with a passion for lifelong learning, community building, and creating spaces for personal and spiritual transformation outside the walls of a church. She has been involved in Christian ministry for more than a decade—working in youth ministry, homeless outreach, and intentional communal living.

Piper received her Master of Divinity degree from Iliff School of Theology, and she currently serves as Cultivator of Fresh Expressions for the Florida Conference of The United Methodist Church, where she explores new ways of reaching new people outside of traditional churches. In the Tallahassee area, Piper facilitates Tally Brew Theology, a community that meets in local breweries and pubs to engage in meaningful dialogue on subjects related to religion and philosophy.
