A Chapel Hill native, Allyson Wieland has a background in the unlikely combination of Home Economics and Law, graduating from Georgetown in 1987. After two judicial clerkships, she became an associate at the Washington DC firm of Steptoe & Johnson, working in the regulatory affairs division. Wanting to use her skills and training to enhance local church ministry, Allyson enrolled at Philadelphia College of Bible (now Cairn University) in 1994. After completing the program, she found herself coming full circle when she and her husband, Charles, moved back to Chapel Hill. In 2017, Allyson received the designation “Certified Church Administrator” from The Church Network. She has been at CGS since 2002. Off the clock, Allyson enjoys theatre, sewing and reading. She considers her library card to be her most prized possession.
