I’m Todd Jenkins and I’m the Transitional Pastor here at FPC, Lewisburg, TN. I’ve been doing this preacher thing since 1990, first in middle Georgia and in middle Tennessee since 1996. Before 1990 I was a Snap-On-Tools dealer in south Georgia; and before that, an assistant manager of the Sherwin-Williams store in Valdosta, Georgia.

My wife and I have three grown children, two sons-in-law, a grandcat, a granddog, and a wild dog of our own. We enjoy hiking, traveling to visit friends and family, and laughing.

Lots of folks who’re looking for a congregation to call home think about what they want from a church family. That’s important. Here’s another question of at least as much importance: What do you want to offer and have to offer to this congregation and community? We’d love to help you explore the answers to these questions as we get to know one another.

I’m Linzi Anderson and I serve as the Director of Youth and Children’s Ministry at FPC, Lewisburg.  I’m originally from Northern Ireland and majored in Chemistry at the University of St Andrews, Scotland, before serving as a Youth Worker in Greystones Presbyterian Church, Ireland.  I moved to Tennessee in July 2015 to participate in CYMT and study for a Masters of Arts in Youth Ministry at Memphis Theological Seminary.   When I am not at church or studying I enjoy playing music, getting outdoors, drinking tea, watching Rugby and cooking anything from the Happy Pear Cookbook.  If you have any questions about the Youth and Children’s Ministry at FPC please get in touch, I look forward to talking with you.

I am proud to be part of First Presbyterian Church, Lewisburg, for over 8 years now,  with an amazing group of singers who share their hearts and voices in worship every week.

I grew up in New Orleans, LA; graduated from Centenary College in Shreveport, LA, and Conservatory of Recording Arts and Sciences in Phoenix, AZ, which led me to Nashville, TN. I've been teaching in Middle Tennessee for over 5 years now; picked up a master's degree in music from Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, TN, and am now the choir director at Kenwood Middle school in Clarksville, TN.

When I am not busy racking up the miles between Lewisburg,  Nashville,  and Clarksville,  I spend my spare time going to concerts and shows around Nashville, going on the occasional leisurely road trip, and binge watching just about anything I can find on Netflix when I finally get much needed time at home.

If you have interest in singing with the choir, and seeing how things look on the other side of the pulpit, I'm sure we can find a robe for you. Feel free to contact me and we'll get you some information.

Hi, I'm Naphtali Rothrock, and I'm the church's organist. To be more specific, I'm actually the church's organist/pianist/occasional violinist/alto in the choir when the music is easy enough that I can manage to play the accompaniment and sing alto at the same time ...But it's easier to just say “organist,” so let's stick with that.
I've been playing piano, and then organ, at churches since I was about 14 or 15 years old, which gives me all of about 10 years of experience – great for someone my age, but nothing compared to most church organists these days!

I have an Associate's degree in music, and varied experience doing everything from planning and performing solo organ concerts to playing violin in a community orchestra, teaching private music lessons to tutoring college-level music theory, playing in the pit to directing the music for musical theater productions.

Outside of music, I'm a hopeless bookworm (no, seriously. It's mid-August as I'm writing this, and I've already read about 50 books this year). I love to knit and crochet (it's hard to find books that will lie open nicely so that I can knit and read at the same time, but there are some out there!). I'm also a “real food foodie” (can you say “raw milk”? How about “kombucha”?), and I love to cook, create, concoct and ferment things in my kitchen.

So is anyone else sensing the “little old lady organist” vibe I've got going on here? I keep telling people I should have been born about 75 years ago!

Hello, I am Darlene Roberson and I am the secretary here at First Presbyterian Church Lewisburg, Tennessee. I also sing in the choir, and am on the session, where I serve as chair of the Music and Worship Committee.

I was born and raised in Houston, Texas; raised in a bakery where I specialized in custom cake decorating. In 2012 I moved to Lewisburg, Tennessee, where I learned how to solder and later weld, which came in handy when I later met and married a cattleman/engineer. Together we love five children, their five spouses, six grandchildren, two cats, and a hundred cows.

As your secretary, I hope to help you in any way I can.
