The Very Rev. Pamela C. Webb will assume responsibilities as director of alumni affairs and church relations at Virginia Theological Seminary (VTS) on October 1.
Webb, rector of St. John's Episcopal Church in Tappahannock, Virginia since 2000, received her Master in Divinity from VTS in 1994. She has served the church with great distinction, as assistant rector at St. Andrew's Episcopal Church in Newport News, Virginia from 1994-1996, and rector of Christ Episcopal Church in Smithfield, Virginia from 1996-2000.
"We are very excited that Pam will assume this important position in the life of the Seminary and the ministry of our graduates," Ed Hall, vice president for institutional advancement at VTS said. "Her enthusiasm and experience will enable the seminary to enhance its continuing commitment to the clergy and congregations of the Episcopal Church at this time of challenge and opportunity."
Webb currently serves as dean of Region II and alternate delegate to the executive board in the Diocese of Virginia. She is married to Dan Webb, an architect in Newport News, Virginia and has three children; Tricia, a teacher in Opelika, Alabama, John, an English teacher in Perugia, Italy, and Matthew, a recent graduate of Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts.
"I cherish countless memories of my three years as a student at VTS, and now am thrilled to have the opportunity to work at the seminary," Webb said. "I look forward to continuing my ministry by helping to build relationships between alumni, parishes and Virginia Seminary."
VTS, founded in 1823, is the largest of the 11 accredited seminaries of the Episcopal Church. The school prepares men and women, representing all eight of the domestic provinces of the Episcopal Church, as well as students from several different provinces and countries within the Anglican Communion, for service in the church, both as ordained and lay ministers, and offers a number of professional degree programs and diplomas.
