As an associate pastor, Connie delights in leading and supporting ministries of care, nurture, compassion, worship and teaching. She’s excited to be a part of the NEW that God has for VPC. A sign on her office wall reflects her heart and call: “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). While she’s occasionally served as lead pastor, her greatest joy is coming alongside members and staff as an Associate Pastor. Born in the heartland, she grew up in PA. She majored in Psychology and Religion at Swarthmore College, and completed her Master of Divinity at Harvard Divinity School.
David, Connie’s beloved husband of 31 years and partner in ministry, entered Life Triumphant in July, 2019. Daughter, Julia, son-in-law, Drew, and grand-dog, George, live locally. Daughter, Mary Grace, and service dog, Bentley, live in Iowa. Connie won’t commit to which breed is her favorite: English Lab or Golden Retriever! In her free time, Connie loves to walk, read, journal, play piano, watch birds, and travel to be with her family and friends.
