Having a strong background in professional leadership, Ms.  Stotts brings a wealth of experience and skill to the position. After 34 years in the secular sector of professional banking, she is launching into full ministry as her primary focus.

Leadership in ministry is not new to LaVerne since she has served as Executive Director since 2018 and Site Coordinator for Christian Life Skills at Union Baptist Church of Swissvale since 2004.  Under her successful leadership the Christian Life Skills Mentoring Ministry has thrived and has been sustained with more graduates who completed the Christian Rite of Passage, than any other church in the Pittsburgh Area.

Additionally, Ms. Stotts serves in several other ministries within her home church, Union Baptist of Swissvale, and served as an officer with the regional-wide interfaith ministry for four years, PIIN (Pennsylvania Interfaith Impact Network) and currently still a Board Member.  Her love for the Lord and His people is evident in her humble and caring manner. She combines the essence of passion and professionalism in all that she does.  We welcome Ms. Stotts in her new role to which she brings strong faith in Christ, vision, knowledge, commitment, phenomenal experience, and energy!

Ms. Stotts is a proud mother of two, Len and Shantelle Stotts and a proud grandmother of three, Tatum Stotts, Sariyah and Saint Bach. She spends the majority of her time traveling from Pittsburgh to Florida and North Carolina to spend quality time with her children and grandchildren.
