Director of Pastoral Care

Nancy Anderson

As a ministry associate, Nancy serves as Director of Pastoral Care. She has been worshipping at Village since January of 2016 and is so delighted to be here. She shares, “Joining a church fellowship later in life could have been a daunting experience, but not at Village. In my personal need for fellowship, I discovered a community of loving, caring people who are like-minded in their desire to wholeheartedly follow and serve the Lord Jesus Christ.”

Nancy accepted the Lord as her Savior during her first quarter of college in 1966 when she was studying at Western Washington University to be a first-grade teacher. She has been walking with Him ever since. Her childhood family was a church-going family in Portland and Seattle but didn’t know about that personal relationship with God. In the late sixties, each gave or recommitted their hearts to Him including her parents and two younger sisters.

Nancy and her husband, Moreland, raised two boys who are also Christ-followers, happily married, and each has one child, Margaret (12) and Jaxy (8). Nancy served for 28 years on a church staff as a ministry assistant gaining invaluable experience that prepared her for the next ten years as a chaplain in assisted living. During those ten years, she pursued a Master of Divinity degree at Multnomah Biblical Seminary to be better equipped to teach the Word of God to seniors. She also became board-certified as a chaplain with HCMA (Healthcare Chaplains Ministry Association).

Nancy sees all of this as God’s preparation for her time now at Village. She is open to however God wishes to use her which is currently with pastoral care. Along with our Seniors Director, Jim Clementson, they seek to be used of God to equip and support the believers at Village in their love for the Lord and for one another. One such way is through Village Care which provides many practical ways to reach out and express this care. She welcomes any questions or interest you might have in finding a place to serve!
