This past Sunday I introduced our new intern during the announcements. I am excited for you to get to know Ginny, who will be serving with us through the summer and fall. Her focus will be on communication and technology projects as well as some curriculum development. I have also developed a personal and spiritual leadership curriculum that she will be working through. I am excited to have her join us. Below you can hear from Ginny herself and get to know her a bit more.

Director of Communications and Church Life

My name is Ginny Pearson and I am the new intern at Blacksburg Presbyterian Church. I am a senior at Virginia Tech pursuing a degree in Human Development. I have a longstanding involvement with the UKirk Campus Ministry at Virginia Tech, which led my interest to working with the church this summer and fall. Through my position as a Student Leader in UKirk over the past three years, I have grown even more passionate about my own personal development and the need for faith communities.

I grew up in Madison Presbyterian Church, near my hometown of Stanardsville, VA. My studies of Human Development and my background with the Presbyterian Church led me to pursue an internship with Blacksburg Presbyterian. My faith is where I find meaning for all things in life, and shapes how I respond to topics such as social justice issues, human services, and education. I am hopeful that working with Blacksburg Presbyterian Church will help me grow in my faith, develop new relationships, and help me gain experience for my future. I have already felt so welcomed by this congregation, and cannot wait to see what the summer and fall semesters hold.


Scripture Reading: Genesis 18:1-15 (21:1-7); Psalm 116:1-2, 12-19; Romans 5:1-8; Matthew 9:35-10:8 (9-23).
