Nancy Vernon Director of Music Ministries

Nancy Vernon
Director of Music Ministries


On staff since:  Full time since 1991; three years part time before that, beginning in 1981.  We moved to Fort Smith in 1979.  I am from Tennessee; my husband is from Louisiana.

Family:  Married to Rowland P. Vernon, Jr. for 45 years

Our children are:  Rowland P. Vernon, III; Ann Elizabeth Vernon Grey; Howard Windrow Vernon and Daniel Mwanza. We have 6 grandchildren. My family is my biggest joy.

In my spare time I: Read, crochet, supervise gardening, cook, search for new music, visit with friends. I really value naps!

My favorite Food: practically everything edible, but especially fruits, vegetables and desserts

My favorite part of ministry: Listening to someone ‘sing a new song unto the Lord’ and hearing our congregation sing hymns with vigor and belief.

Life Motto:   Praise God from whom all blessings flow.

Favorite Book: Growing up, my favorite book was The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett. Too many to pick just one now.  I prefer non-fiction, history, biography and travel books.
