Nancy KinserRev. Nancy Kinzer



Associate Pastor for Pastoral Care

Nancy Kinzer is a supply preacher, ruling elder and teacher, and her deep enjoyment is helping others discover where God is already at work in their lives and what God is calling them to do next. She does this through engaging Scripture in sermons or seminars, and sitting with beloved church members in pastoral care. She has filled pulpits at Faith Presbyterian Church in Blue Ridge, Trinity Presbyterian Church in Decatur, Philips Tower, and Presbyterian Village. 

Nancy grew up in Atlanta and attended Davidson College in North Carolina. After college, she lived and worked for three years in the San Francisco Bay area. Sometime after returning to Atlanta, Nancy savored the process of seminary at Columbia Theological Seminary alongside her children’s growing years at home. She also learned much from an internship (CPE) at Grady Memorial Hospital. 

Nancy loves to ride bikes on Atlanta trails, read well-written mysteries, and laugh over long dinners with her irreverent book club of over fifteen years.
