Our Interim Pastor– Rev Thomas Robison
Pastor Tom, as he is usually called, often expresses his appreciation of his call to Bethany Church as Interim Minister. He comes from a varied church experience—beginning with internship in inner city Philadelphia, city churches in Minneapolis and Duluth, Minnesota, redevelopment of a new mission start in Houston, a suburban Houston church, and a downtown congregation here in San Antonio. He is trained and has experience in intentional interim ministry [meaning the transitional work necessary for the congregation to prepare for a new pastor]. Special interests include classical guitar, walking/water jogging, leading Men’s Group at Haven for Hope, and reading. He and Claudia reside in a condo in Olmos Park. They have two daughters and families in SA, and one in Grapevine, Texas—including 7 grandchildren and three grand-dogs. Tom’s view of the world is that all people are created in God’s image and that God’s grace is freely given to all.
Our Student Pastor– Jenny Perkins
Jenny is a seminary student at Lexington Theological Seminary. She is in a hybrid Masters of Divinity program that allows her to do much of her course work online and her internship here in San Antonio, while traveling to Lexington, KY each year for courses as well. She is a Member in Discernment and is seeking ordination through the United Church of Christ. She is grateful for the trust that the congregation of Bethany has put in her as she learns to put her ministry into practice here.
When not involved in seminary studies and church work, Jenny stays busy raising her four children and enjoying life with them. Juggling all of this is only possible with the immense support and encouragement she receives from her husband, Bob…who is also her favorite travel companion!
