John’s family is his greatest joy. Ellen enjoys being involved in a variety of ways in the church and in the local community. She is an advocate for the role of children and youth in our church. She loves cooking, menu planning, and eating new foods and ethnic cuisines. She believes there is something about God’s gift of food that enables us to share each other’s lives. Ellen is energized by people and loves gatherings, church and musical events and serving on committees. She earned a chemistry degree from Grove City College, PA and has enjoyed work in the technical field. 

John and Ellen's two daughters, Erica and Grace, live and work in the Washington, DC area.

Rachel Hébert

Associate Pastor for Community Care

Rachel was raised in Sherman, Texas (and the Presbyterian Church), but had dreams of singing on the stage, so she went to Belmont University in Nashville, TN to study classical voice. However, God had other plans. Rachel graduated with her Bachelor of Arts in Religion and the Arts (the perfect coming together of her faith and music) in 2011, and only knowing that she had a love for theology and coffee, moved to Tulsa, OK to be the University Ministries Intern at the University of Tulsa and First Presbyterian Church of Tulsa. Sensing a deeper call to ordained ministry, Rachel attended Princeton Theological Seminary for her Master of Divinity (2015). During her time in seminary, she interned at Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church where she started up their college ministry program. Her love for outreach and college ministry made WPC the perfect fit, and she has called Williamsburg home since starting as Associate Pastor here in August of 2015.

Rachel’s love for theology, college ministry, and coffee continue to be part of Rachel’s ministry: she’s a blogger for the HuffPost Religion section, holds regular “office hours” at the Daily Grind on William & Mary’s campus for students, and can oftentimes be found at her “second office” at Aromas.
