Alison Raskin

Director of Communication & Connections

Alison was born, raised and attended college in Pennsylvania. She has lived in Virginia, California (where she picked up a husband and a Master of Divinity degree), Prague, and Massachusetts before recently returning to the Mid-Atlantic to settle down with her husband and their three year old daughter in the Baltimore area.  Alison was raised in the church; while her grandpa was a pastor in the PC(USA), she’s been blessed to have been formed by a variety of denominations along the way.  When the Communications and Connections Director position became available she was excited to jump back into this stream with us! She most recently worked for a youth ministry organization and has launched a podcast and social media project/ministry with her husband called Reclamation Faith.

Interests & Hobbies – Alison loves communicating and connecting… so she finds her new job title and description very fitting. When she isn’t chasing her very active three year old or recording her podcast you might find her traveling, cooking or kayaking.

Interesting Tidbit –  While never thinking of or even desiring a fairy tale wedding–when Alison and her husband-to-be looked into a castle as a joke (in the region where they wanted to get married) they found it was the cheapest option available to them! So a castle-fairy-tale-wedding it was… which continues to be both sweet and slightly embarrassing to Alison.
