A Lifetime of Faith
Meet Frances Taylor Gench
By Jessica Denson
To say that faith runs in the Rev. Frances Taylor Gench’s family is a massive understatement. She’s a fifth-generation Presbyterian minister and has been married for more than 31 years to the Rev. Roger J. Gench, senior pastor of the New York Avenue Presbyterian Church in Washington, D.C. Her “experience of Christian grace” began before she could even consciously form thoughts about her infant baptism.
