Pr. Virginia Ward
Pastoral Care Provider

Virginia and Don - flipped_edited.jpg

Hello, I’d like to introduce myself to those of you who don’t yet know me: I’m Pastor Virginia Ward and I’ve been connected to United in Grace since December 2021, when my husband Don and I moved from Auburn to Vallejo. Don and I have enjoyed attending the weekly book study group and food bank monthly distribution, and I have attended many of the women’s Bible Studies. It’s been a pleasure to get to know the good folks at UIG. After leaving 9 months of pastoral service at Hope Lutheran in El Sobrante, I was offered this position as part-time Pastoral Care Provider at UIG. I was honored to be asked, and look forward to serving UIG members with hospital and home visits (including bringing Communion if desired), praying with you, and meeting anyone affiliated with UIG who wishes to talk about anything on their minds, either by phone, or at church, a coffee shop or your home, etc. I’m happy to talk with non-members as well as church members. Having attended 3 seminaries, I was ordained as a Lutheran pastor in 1987 and have served 7 churches. I have some training in pastoral care and counseling and am also a trained Spiritual Director: a type of coach that helps people explore their spiritual life. I have had lots of experience talking and praying with people about the deeper issues of life: chronic ill health or a physical crisis, emotional and family issues, spirituality, questions about faith, etc. If I haven’t met you yet, I look forward to doing so and hope you’ll feel free to contact me to talk and pray together.
