The Rev. Beverly Brewster - Our Pastor

The Rev. Beverly Brewster

The Rev. Beverly Brewster (Pastor Bev) moved to San Anselmo in 1987 to raise her children, Liz and Andy.  She loves this community and considers San Anselmo her home town.  Pastor Bev grew up in Virginia, where she attended Presbyterian church with her grandfather, a doctor, and then accompanied him on house calls.  She was educated at Duke University and the University of Virginia School of Law, and practiced trial law in New York City, San Francisco, and San Rafael. When her children were very young, she returned to the Presbyterian church, so that they could grow up in a caring community where respect, justice, and peace were taught and modeled.  She answered God’s call to seminary in 2004, and graduated from the San Francisco Theological Seminary in 2008 after serving as pastoral intern to Calvary Presbyterian Church in San Francisco and Knox Presbyterian Church in Santa Rosa.  After serving the seminary for two years as Director of Admissions, she became Temporary Pastor at SHPC.  In October 2012 she was called and installed as permanent Pastor of the church in a joyful service of celebration.  Pastor Bev loves people of all ages, and believes that church is intended to be non-judgmental, welcoming to all, concerned with justice for all people, and a place of healing and renewal.  She welcomes your emails at  beverlybrewster@comcast.net
