Reverend Kimberly Rodrigue

A graduate of Union Presbyterian Seminary, Rev. Rodrigue has served as an associate pastor in Nashville, TN, lead pastor in Washington, D. C. and Arlington, VA, and most recently was the interim pastor in Nashville, TN. Other career highlights include time at the Ghost Ranch Presbyterian Conference Center and as a hospital chaplain. In her own words, "I thrive in a church that is vibrant, questioning, growing, aware that it is not perfect. This imperfect community of believers and doubters seeks to know God, follow Jesus, uphold one another in struggle and celebration, reach out beyond itself to serve and stand with others. God is love. I believe that, trust that and stake my life on it. Everything else flows from that very basic reality." 

Pastor Kim is passionate about church transformation. She will serve a our Transitional Pastor for a 3 year full time (temporary) term that could end up being a long-term installed position. 

Pastor Kim has initiated a Pastor Around Town approach to connecting with members, visiors, and community members.  One of her commitments in my weekly work schedule is to have some set hours at a place outside the church building, saying, "Sometimes people are more comfortable talking with a pastor outside of the walls of a church. It may be a time for you to drop by or to bring a friend to visit. You don't have to have a particular need to stop by, but it is fine if you do.  It’s a time for conversation on anything from personal matters to church concerns to world peace – or anything else."

Pastor Kim’s walk, coffee & beer hours are subject to change, but are posted on the church's web calendar weekly.  In addition, she will be at the church on Wednesday afternoons from 2-4 for anyone who wants to drop by, or call 504-866-7409 or email kim@fpcno.org to set up another time or location.
