Legacy of Changing Lives… FPC, Nashville

Dear Friends at First Presbyterian Church,

Debbie and I have been so grateful for the financial support we’ve received from FPC. It wasn’t until we arrived here that we realized just how important and unusual it is to be supported like this. We know too many stories of seminary students accruing significant debt for careers that don’t exactly bring in large paychecks. Debbie and I will be able to walk out of our time at Princeton Theological Seminary with almost no debt. As we consider our next steps in the ministry, we are thankful for the freedom to make those decisions without the added factors of student loans.

Just recently, I’ve begun to help pastor a tiny “country church” just outside of Princeton. The context couldn’t be more different than my time at FPC! We often wonder how we’ll pay the light bill or fix the roof if something were to happen, so supporting young seminarians doesn’t usually make our budget. This, as it turns out, tends to be the norm in church life rather than the exception. Once again, I’ve found myself more aware of the unique gift that FPC has offered Debbie and me.

Thank you all for the generous and creative ways that you’ve continued to support the many ministries of FPC. We miss you all and can often be heard bragging on our “Nashville home” to our New Jersey friends!

With love and appreciation,
Debbie and Trey Wince
