Presbytery Pastor Resigns

Dear Presbytery of Nevada Friends,

It was wonderful to see so many of you at the Fall meeting of the Presbytery of Nevada. It was an added blessing to meet on the beautiful grounds of Zephyr Point!

By now many of you have heard the news that I have resigned from my position as Presbytery Pastor, effective December 31, 2019. I feel extremely blessed that I have had four years to serve on the staff of a Presbytery I love. I want to thank you for the confidence that you have placed in me and for allowing me to be part of your life!

I also want to say that leaving this position is not easy, but it has become necessary as Denis and I will be moving my mother to Henderson to live with us in the next week or so. For a variety of reasons my mother can no longer live independently and therefore we will be taking over as her caregivers.

It is clear to me that in order to accomplish the goals set out in the Presbytery Pastor position description, one needs to be able to travel to every corner of our Presbytery. Though much of the work can be done from a home office, the face-to-face time with pastors and congregations is at the heart of building the trust and relationships that make us truly connected as a presbytery.

Denis and I will miss spending time with the wonderful pastors and church members in our Presbytery family. We treasure the friendships and the memories! You have blessed us so much. We are glad that we will see many of you at future Presbytery gatherings.

I will continue as an active member of the Presbytery and I look forward to whatever service opportunities God has in store.

Once again, thank you for your trust, affirmation and friendship. I pray that God will bless you, your family and congregation!

In Christian love,


The Reverend Hilda Grace Pecoraro
