...as a member of Northside United Methodist Church. After attending Duke University and getting a Masters Degree at the University of Georgia, and while engaged to Toby, Katie accepted the summer position of Camp Evergreen Director in 1999, the camp's first summer of operation.
The Grady's married in 1999 and moved to Portland, Oregon so that Toby, a University of Georgia graduate, could pursue his Masters in Divinity at Multnomah Biblical Seminary. Katie taught music in the public school system during this time. The Grady's were employed at a Cub Scout camp in Oregon for one summer, then accepted positions at Camp Evergreen for the following summer. They've been a part of the Camp Evergreen ministry ever since!
In 2003, the Grady's moved to Boone, North Carolina, where Toby began Trail Student Ministries, a campus ministry at Appalachian State University. During their ten years of ministry there, they added three children to the family: Jacob, Sarah Grace and Stephen.
Most recently the Grady family has moved to Clarkesville, GA, just 20 minutes from camp. In addition to running camp in the summer and retreats in the spring and fall, they run a residential discipleship ministry from their home.
