After 10+ months of interviews and meetings via Zoom and ultimately, an in-person (socially distanced and masked) weekend visit, the PNC has unanimously selected and issued a call to Heather Woodworth Brannon.
Heather is a graduate of Union Presbyterian Seminary, where she received awards for her outstanding preaching, and superior academic achievement. She is currently pursuing advanced graduate work as a biblical scholar at Emory University in Old Testament. Prior to seminary, Heather obtained a Bachelors and Master’s degree from the Peabody Conservatory at Johns Hopkins University and upon graduation she was a teacher and department chair for six years in Raleigh, North Carolina.
As we got to know Heather via Zoom meetings and our in-person visit, we found Heather to be an inspiring, thought provoking and forward-thinking leader. You will be receiving this document via email this afternoon giving you in-depth information about Heather. Hard copies of the same will be available after the service. This document includes the PNC’s process, more about Heather, a letter from her, links to previously recorded sermons, her statement of faith, her CV, and testimonials from Heather’s references and our PNC.
On Nov. 15th you will have the opportunity to hear Heather preach with a formal congregational meeting to be held following the service – details about that service will be forthcoming. In the meantime we encourage you to get to know Heather both through this Introduction letter.
I would like to take a moment to recognize and thank the other members of the PNC – we are a diverse group with differing points of view – a group we believe well represented the Wyoming congregation:
Co-chairs Michael Gillim and Debbie Jacoby
Julie Hutchinson, Ann Zauber, Foster Wright, Deirdre Brown, Scott Tansey
