Rev. Darnysha Nard  |  2017-2019 Pastoral Resident

First Baptist Greensboro is excited to announce Rev. Darnysha Nard as our new Pastoral Resident. Darnysha will begin her Residency in September.

A graduate of Wake Forest University Divinity School (MDiv ’17) and Virginia Commonwealth University (BA in English ’13), Darnysha has a wide range of ministry experience. She has served as a Pastoral Intern at churches including First Baptist Church, Highland Avenue in Winston-Salem and First Baptist Church of Greenville, SC. Darnysha also served as a Chaplain Intern with Wake Forest Baptist University Medical Center as part of her education at Wake Forest. For multiple summers, she has worked with the nationally recognized youth camp ministry, PASSPORT, including serving as Camp Director for PASSPORT MissionBASE in Washington, D.C. in Summer of 2017.

Darnysha’s ministry at First Baptist will draw on her breadth of experience and passions. While particular areas of focus will be identified within the first few months, one of her areas of focus will be as part of First Baptist’s youth ministry.

Please pray for Darnysha in this transition, and find ways to welcome her with First Baptist hospitality as her Residency begins. For more about the Pastoral Residency, visit our Residency page here.

“There are many times that I have heard people talk and preach about the Kingdom of God as a distant and hopeful place of arrival, but I like to think that there are glimpses of it here on earth. I think the church is one of those glimpses.” –Rev. Darnysha Nard
