     I have served as pastor of Bethel Presbyterian Church since July, 2010. I first accepted a call to become the temporary supply pastor at Bethel and then was called as the installed pastor in April, 2011. Ordained in 2007 after completing my M.Div. at Columbia Theological Seminary, I also completed a year-long residency in Clinical Pastoral Education at the James H. Quillen Veterans Affairs Medical Center at Mountain Home, TN. I was employed as a hospice chaplain for several years, serving counties in Northeast TN.

     Of particular interest to me are the joys of preaching, visiting with members of the congregation, and working with a lectionary group that spends time each week studying scripture in preparation for preaching. When not tending to pastoral responsibilities, you might find me gardening, reading, or helping my husband, Joe in caring for our historic home in Jonesborough.

    Joe and I enjoy trying to keep up with our three grown children and new grandson – daughter Maggie, (husband, Les Roll, son Silas) live in Hazard KY, son, Joseph living in Ithaca NY, daughter, Carter also a Jonesborough resident.

    I am deeply grateful to be the pastor of Bethel Presbyterian Church and invite you to join us any Sunday morning. You will receive a warm welcome.

Grace and peace,






Donna Patrick, Treasurer
