Rev. Nancy Hawthorne Parker

Nancy is a creative and energetic pastor in the United Methodist Church and began working with the Wesley Fellowship at Vanderbilt in 2016. She frequently breaks into song and laughter.  When she’s not pastorin’ or interviewing people you can find her taking voice classes at the Nashville Jazz Workshop or maybe kayaking down the Harpeth.

Nancy has a Bachelors of Arts in music from Florida State University and a Masters of Divinity from Vanderbilt Divinity School.  She is married to Geoff who works to create young adult ministry resources at The Upper Room.

I believe the best way to get to know anyone is over coffee or ice cream — so we should do that sometime — my treat!
