Becca brings a myriad of talents to her service on the board.
She is not only gifted with words, she is skilled with spreadsheets and numbers. Becca listens intently with the ability to tune out the noise, hear the signal and speak with clarity, truth and grace. She is able to put vision into action collaboratively and with great passion and care.
Becca is co-pastor at Trinity Presbyterian Church in Herndon, Virginia, where she has served for 13 years. There, she was part of the team that planted a congregation of recent immigrants and day laborers called “Lunch for the Soul.” She is co-chair of VOICE (Virginians Organized for Interfaith Community Engagement), a large multifaith organization in Northern Virginia that does groundbreaking work in public education, immigration, housing and criminal justice reform. She is a frequent presenter, workshop leader and writer around the denomination and community. She was glad to be a writer and blogger for the Outlook and was on the team that wrote “Cultivated Ministry,” a book published by NEXT Church about how to measure congregational effectiveness beyond the ABC’s: Attendance, building and cash.
Becca loves distance running, singing, laughing and talking about the spiritual tool called the enneagram. She loves movies, but has fallen asleep in most movies released after the year 2010. That is mostly because she is mom to Grace (age 9) and Davis (age 7). She’s married to Dave, a lifelong Presbyterian and grandson and great-grandson of Presbyterian ministers. They now live in Arlington, Virginia.
Before going into ministry, Becca was born in Charlotte, North Carolina, grew up in Danville, Virginia, attended UVA for undergrad, worked in strategic business development and process improvement at the Home Depot HQ in Atlanta and served as a Presbyterian Young Adult Volunteer in Guatemala, where her life changed dramatically and led toward this wild and wondrous calling of ministry.
The Presbyterian Outlook Foundation is governed by a board of 15 directors. The Presbyterian Outlook is an independent, non-profit 501(c)(3), funded through subscription sales, ad sales and donations.
