Nancy’s favorite time of year is Spring. Looking back on family traditions, she fondly remembers her family egg hunt with her sister on Easter Sunday morning before church as a little girl. Nancy and her sister no longer participate in egg hunts together, as they are an ocean apart. But, they do use Skype to keep in touch across the miles from the U.S. to Germany. We wonder if Nancy can speak a little German herself. That’s a good one to ask when we see her in 4 days!

Nancy is a bit of a daredevil. Throughout college and a few years thereafter, she went skydiving every weekend that she could get to a drop zone. Nancy also has a silly side and has been known to dress as a chicken at church. We are sure there is a story behind that one and can’t wait to ask her when she arrives in 6 days!

Nancy loves the ocean and is a beach bum at heart. One of her favorite vacation spots is Sanibel Island, Florida. She enjoys taking time to add to her collection of shells while walking along the shore. She enjoys everything the “salt life” has to offer including swimming, snorkeling, boating and watching the sunset.

Southminster Presbyterian is excited to welcome our new Pastor/Head of Staff, Nancy Birdsong! Each day, we will be revealing new answers to the question that is on everyone’s mind and on all the signs! Who is Nancy?

Nancy grew up in Richmond, VA and attended the University of Virginia, where she was in the pre-med program while majoring in English and minoring in psychology. Nancy’s first stirrings about the possibility of ministry came when she was working at the UVA Hospital emergency room and realized that she was the primary person whom the staff sought out to offer comfort to people who were frightened, in pain or grieving.  While her sense of empathy and compassion had always been strong, she began to think that perhaps God wanted her to use these gifts in ministry. Nancy then went on to attend Union Presbyterian Seminary in Richmond. Interested in learning more about Nancy’s own faith?

Nancy believes that “the church gathers us in to worship and nurtures us in the life of faith, then sends us out to serve others in compassion and love so that we become reflections of God’s light in the world.” This is evident not only in Nancy’s spoken word, but also in her actions. Nancy has invited congregational members of all ages in an annual Sunday of service in the community called The Church Has Left the Building.  On that Sunday, the congregation does not go to church. Instead, they become the church in their community through acts of serving and helping others.
