Meet Our Speaker

Rev. Tammy Humphries grew up at Harmony Grove UMC. Her family, the Parrishes, joined the church when she was in the 8th Grade. She was active in the church youth group as a teen. As an adult, she was married in the “old” sanctuary, and her three babies were baptized in the “new” sanctuary. During her years at Harmony Grove, she participated in many ministries, activities and Bible studies worshipping with some of the most precious people in her life. The people of Harmony Grove are the foundation to her faith journey.
God called Tammy into pastoral ministry while she was at Harmony Grove. She was affirmed in her call at a Women’s Retreat for this very group, confirming it later in another church. The years in-between and since have given her first-hand experiences of God’s grace in the midst of life’s difficulties. She now serves as an associate pastor at Forest Hills Church in Macon, Ga where she lives with her husband, Chuck, and their fur babies.
