Our Pastors

Rev. Linda Rainey, Bridge Pastor

I am a native of Virginia Beach, married to my husband, Gene, for almost 49 years.  We have two daughters and five grandchildren.  I am a second career pastor, working first in juvenile probation for 20 years.  I left that position and served as a Director of Christian Education and received my Master’s in Christian Education, and continued on to receive my Master’s of Divinity.  I have served four churches and as a Campus Minister for Old Dominion University. I am excited to be serving Providence Presbyterian as one of the Bridge Pastors and look forward to all that God has in store for us as we wait for your new pastor!
