Pastor: Rev. Barb Seekford
Pastor Barb began her ministry with St. Andrew in July 2021. She graduated from Ursinus College with a Bachelor’s in English and from Eastern Baptist (Palmer) Theological Seminary with a Master of Divinity. She began her ministry career in 2005. In her time as an ordained elder, she has served on the District Committee of Ordained Ministry and continues to serve as both a candidacy and clergy mentor.
Pastor Barb has a certificate in coaching. This has been beneficial in her role as a pastor as she is able to utilize these skills to help both individuals and churches discern where God is calling them and help equip them for the journey ahead. She is also trained to work with the Mid Atlantic Foundation as a coach through their Financial Leadership Academy program.
A little about her personally... she is originally from the Boyertown area. She is married to Andy and has two grown children. In her free time, she likes to read, go kayaking, ride motorcycle, and spend time with family and friends.
Her ministry is guided by her personal mission statement which is: to imagine, inspire, and ignite lives of authenticity and integrity. She is excited to be serving as the pastor at St. Andrew and is looking forward to helping write the next chapter of St. Andrew’s story.
