Administration & Operations
” M. Beverly Miller, along with her 2 children Nic and Sarah, were old time members of All Souls Church back in the late 1980s. Beverly found herself back in the company of the good folks of this church as of last January, 2016 to serve as the newly hired Office Administrator. It was, and remains, an especially safe and comforting place for her to land following the death of her son Nic in April of 2014. What brought her here as a member keeps her here now as a staff person, i.e., the warm and heartfelt supportive nature of the members of this congregation.”
