Amy Budka

Amy Budka has been a part of the Old South Church family since 1991. Amy holds a bachelor's degree in percussion performance from the New England Conservatory, and a Masters in Music Education from the Boston Conservatory. She enjoys playing all styles of drumming, and performs when time permits with various community music ensembles, including the Boston Civic Symphony, the Wellesley Symphony and the Metropolitan Wind Symphony. During the week she teaches music, jazz band, choral and theater arts to middle school students in Bedford, MA.

Martha Schick

As Youth and Young Adult Ministries Leader, Martha coordinates, organizes, and teaches middle and high schoolers in Youth Group and 20- and 30-somethings in the Young Adult cohort. She is focused on nurturing fellowship, service, and theology across age groups, and wants to help folks stay connected to their community and the church. She takes joy in the brilliance, hilarity, and weirdness that comes with working with young people.

Kate Nintcheu

Kate Nintcheu has served as our Director of Children & Family Ministries since 2014, leading a team of staff and volunteers who teach church school classes, provide safe and reliable childcare, and lead our students in music and worship arts. She serves on the Christian Formation committee, hosts all-church inter-generational activities, and works to equip and encourage parents as the primary faith leaders to their children.

Carolyn Davis

Since 1979, Carolyn has directed our weekday program for young children ages 2-5 years at our Old South Preschool. Many years ago, the church historian identified the founding year of the school as 1947. However, a recent review of historical documents by Senior Minister, Nancy Taylor, noted it originated in 1942, "as a means of providing childcare so that mothers can participate in the Tuesday [Women's] Guild work (part-missionary work, and part-war effort)." Carolyn began as director one year after the school expanded its schedules to 2 - 5 days.
