Rev. Nicole Ball

Parish Associate

Office: (804) 358-2383 ext. 110

Questions about children’s faith formation for ages birth to 5th grade can be directed to Nicole.


  • Bible Verse: Psalm 139 and Romans 8:38-39
  • TV Shows: Chef's Table, Mare of Easttown, anything I can watch that isn't a kids show
  • Music: Surfaces, Ray LaMontagne, Brandi Carlile
  • Podcasts: (currently) The Daily, The Drop Out, and The Rise & Fall of Mars Hill
  • For fun I like to: spend long hours in conversation, on a couch, preferably with coffee or wine. I love the challenge of CrossFit, and cooking for others; both are sources of catharsis for me. Finally, any time I get to spend outdoors with my little family brings me great joy!

About Nicole

I have always called Virginia home. My Christian faith sprang from an upbringing in the southern and moderate Baptist churches of northern Virginia. I attended Randolph-Macon College (Go Jackets!) where I played women's basketball and met my husband, Tyler. I received my M.Div. from Union Presbyterian Seminary and was ordained in the Presbytery of the James. I have served in hospitals, higher education, and congregations in and around Richmond for the last 10 years. Tyler and I have three vivacious children: Stella, Waylon, and Wyatt.

Elders are charged with the oversight of the life of our congregation – leading, governing, and caring for its members.  Both individually and collectively (as the Session), elders provide leadership in worship, teaching, mission, evangelism, care and nurture.  Along with the pastors, the elders are the shepherds of the flock.

Deacons are charged with the sympathy, witness and service for all our members. Deacons are persons of spiritual character, honest repute, exemplary lives, brotherly and sisterly love, warm sympathies and sound judgment. Both individually and collectively (as the Diaconate), deacons provide compassionate care for all church members.
