My name is Eliza Stewart and I am excited for another summer at Duke Memorial! I am from Santa Rosa Beach, Florida and got my undergraduate degree in Religion in Montgomery, AL. I am married to my wife, Jayne, and we love our dog, Rosie (who may appear in videos from home). I am looking forward to further discernment and preparation for pastoral ministry and to also continue to serve this special community. I have found DM to be a very unique place that is bent toward justice, love, and faithful response to the Holy Spirit. I am so excited for this next season.
Hello! My name is Mac Albergotti, and I’m a third-year student at Duke Divinity School. I am originally from South Carolina, and I completed a bachelor’s degree in Biblical Studies and Theology at Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois. I met my fiancé, Emily Lengel, while at Wheaton, and we are looking forward to getting married in the Fall.
I was called to ministry when I was in high school and, over the years, I’ve served in a variety of youth, outreach, worship, and children’s ministries. I recognized my call to ministry when I saw the Holy Spirit interceding on my behalf when I was younger. Since then, I have desired to help create worship spaces where all people feel loved, valued, and cared for. I am incredibly excited to learn and serve alongside Duke Memorial UMC, and I hope I can use whatever experiences I’ve had to help support the Church’s ministry.
