Pastor Becky comes originally from Minnesota, where she earned a Bachelor’s degree in Women’s studies from the University of Minnesota (and where she met her husband Paul).

She then achieved her Master’s in Library and Information Sciences from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Pastor Becky and Paul fell in love with the Pacific Northwest after visiting friends up here, so they moved to Seattle in 1992.

After being a librarian for several years, Pastor Becky began directing the children’s program at Plymouth UCC in Seattle. That part-time position evolved into a call to pursue ordained ministry.

After completing the Masters of Divinity program at Seattle University School of Theology, plus two internships and a unit of Clinical Pastoral Education, Pastor Becky was called to serve Everett Church of Christ. Her passions in ministry include spiritual development and justice issues.

Now we have the honor and great joy to have Becky Withington as our own New Pilgrims UCC pastor.
