Introducing Our New Team Members

Jessica Weaver

We are thrilled to welcome two new team members here at CIAC. Their skills and passion are an asset to our work with immigrants and refugees.

Kathy Molnar, administrative assistant

Several years ago, I retired with over 25 years of experience helping to establish and to grow a family business and working alongside the executive team of a large educational corporation. My administrative strengths are in seeing a need within a business and creating processes and procedures to address those needs.

I enjoy retirement but almost from the beginning felt called to part time work. I patiently waited to see where the Lord would lead me. After many years of attending and serving at a suburban church, we felt drawn to ACAC with its diverse community and mission focus.

My husband and I became involved in the refugee and immigrant ministry, which led us to participate in an immersion experience that CIAC held in October 2022. What was it like for the Afghan refugees to enter our country? In one short hour, our eyes were open to the difficult, stressful and often confusing process.

In March of 2023 I said to my husband that I was ready to go back to work and was praying for a part time job that would not only utilize my skills, but afford the blessing of being able to talk Jesus at work.

God answered in 2 short days with an email from CIAC announcing “We Are Hiring!” The position and the job description were exactly what I had put before the Lord. The rest of the story is history.

I love supporting this team of dedicated missionaries who share the love of Jesus with our immigrant and refugee neighbors.

William McCarthy, law student intern

I am tremendously excited at the opportunity to join CIAC this summer as the organization’s work represents the values that motivated me to pursue a legal career.

After studying immigration law at Harvard Law School this semester, I look forward to learning the more practical aspects from their highly experienced staff. Additionally, I know the benefits of their guidance will extend beyond the law, as they demonstrate what holistic support for immigrants –rooted in a Christian ethic– looks like in action.

I am also excited to provide support to the immigrant community in Pittsburgh, the city where I was born and raised.
