Dr. Nelson goes to Washington

From the Presbyterian News Service:

Wo-header The Rev. Dr. J. Herbert Nelson II, a third-generation Presbyterian pastor, has been named the new director of public witness for the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) Washington Office. Nelson has 25 years of experience in congregational ministry. The past several years, he has worked in a new church development at Liberation Community Presbyterian Church, a ministry with the urban poor of Memphis, Tenn.

The Presbyterian Washington Office is the public policy information and advocacy office of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). The office advocates, and helps the church at large to live out the social witness perspectives and policies of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). The church has a long history of applying these biblically and theologically-based insights to issues that affect the public — maintaining a public policy ministry in the nation’s capital since 1946.

Best wishes to Dr. Nelson as he begins this new ministry!
