Joining the GenOn staff, Amanda Nevin will be serving as Database Administrator. Amanda has served the church for over twenty years both as an ordained minister and as a volunteer. She has served in the areas of youth, children, family ministries, and worship, and has worked with LOGOS in both of her former congregations (including beginning the first ever mid-week program called SEEkers for children K-5th grade in her last call). She has served her congregations through curriculum development, writing, preaching, contemporary worship, teaching, pastoral care and through membership and membership retention.
After her mother became ill, Amanda felt called to return home to care for her disabled mother and to raise her two children. She is currently a care-giver and mother to a daughter who is seven and a son who is four. She volunteers in her children’s classroom as an art docent and parent helper; in her church through teaching and worship/preaching, the food pantry and in the Presbytery with the Committee on Ministry and pulpit supply. She is a blogger, writer, and is in the process of getting accredited with a university to teach a class on world religions on a part time basis.
On being called to serve as the Database Administrator, Amanda is excited to support GenOn Ministries with her gifts of administration. It is her hope that through helping to organize the GenOn database and information system, she will help create a systematic and easy way of managing data for all of the GenOn staff so they can do their ministry more effectively and more efficiently. She believes strongly in the ministry of GenOn and how it can help congregations increase their intergenerational ministries and is excited to be part of this ministry team.
