Transitional Associate Pastor
As a transitional associate pastor, Connie delights in leading and supporting ministries of care, nurture, compassion, and worship. She is also helping VPC bridge into newer ministries such as online worship and racial justice. God has reconciled us through Christ; in turn, Connie invites others to join her in being God’s reconciling people. (2 Corinthians 5:16-21) A plaque on her office wall sums up the pastor God has called Connie to be: “All I have time for is love and grace.”
A nearly “cradle” Presbyterian, Connie has served 6 congregations over 3 decades of ordained ministry in the PC(USA). She hails from PA, and is a graduate of Swarthmore College and Harvard Divinity School.
David, Connie’s beloved husband of 31 years and partner in ministry, entered Life Triumphant in July, 2019. Daughter, Julia, and son-in-law, Drew, live locally. Daughter, Mary Grace, attends an out-of-state school for adopted children with co-occurring challenges. In her free time, Connie loves to walk, read, journal, play piano, and sing.
