Our interim pastor is Don Dilley.
I have been in every state except Alaska and every continent except Australia and Antarctica. My professional path has been broad. Roles I have performed in my adult life include pastor, college instructor, school bus driver, executive management coach/trainer, computer technician, technical trainer, entrepreneur, small business owner, and chaplain. I returned to my pastoral calling as part of my transition at age sixty. I served at Verona Presbyterian Church in Pittsburgh. I retired from the full time ministry in 2009 and moved on to my boat full time. I set sail for the Bahamas. I served as Interim Pastor at Richmond Hill Church for three years. I took some time off to sail from Savannah to Key West and back. I served Douglas Presbyterian Church for two years.
I look forward to worshiping, praying, playing, and studying with you. Let us begin our time together secure in God’s love and giving thanks for this time and this place in our lives.
Nancy Shuman is our music director every Sunday.
Nancy grew up in Folkston, Georgia, a small town south of Brunswick. She married her high school sweetheart, Bill Shuman, and they have been married 53 years. They had four daughters, two live in Brunswick, one lives in St. Johns, Florida, and they lost one daughter in 2007. They have 10 awesome grandchildren who they love and cherish. Bill is a Georgia Tech civil engineer graduate and Nancy worked to “put him through college.” Their first daughter was born two months after Bill graduated and Nancy became a “stay at home” Mom. Nancy did return to the work first as a church preschool teacher and later director of the School of Discovery, First United Methodist Church in Jesup, Georgia for 12 years before moving to Brunswick in 1996. Nancy has help direct and played for children and youth choirs as well as participated in adult church and community choirs. She has enjoyed returning to her piano to play for Frederica church and appreciates the love and support she receives.
