Julie Connor and her family moved into the Tyler community in 2010. She, her husband Tim, daughter Kelsey, and son Jackson quickly fell in love with this East Texas town and its people. Julie began her career with a degree in music education. After taking some years off to raise her kids, she discovered her passion for using her organizational and people skills to serve in administrative roles. She loves using her giftings in these areas.
Julie joined The Mentoring Alliance in 2017. Julie and her family were part of the initiative that eventually became Gospel Village. They have been mentoring a brother and sister pair since 2011, so she feels working for TMA is coming full circle. Julie is excited about the opportunity to make an impact for the Gospel here in East Texas through The Mentoring Alliance. Julie says of her position, "I love the amazing people I get to serve with each day as we seek to mobilize godly people together. Eternal hope makes all the difference."
