The Rev. Rebecca Segers was called into leadership of Third Church in 2021, and began her ministry as Pastor and Head of Staff in January 2022. Prior to joining this congregation, she served as the Head Pastor of the First Presbyterian Church of Germantown in Philadelphia, PA; the Solo Pastor of Old Greenwich Presbyterian Church in Stewartsville, NJ; the Solo Pastor of the Presbyterian Church of Sweet Hollow in Melville, NY; and an Associate Pastor of Wilton Presbyterian Church in Wilton, CT.
Rebecca was raised Presbyterian and remained active in the church throughout her life, but she did not feel the call to ministry until after a successful career as a theater, television, and film actress. She holds an MDiv from Union Theological Seminary, New York, NY and a BA in Theater Arts from University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, AR.
Rebecca loves her daughter Grace, a Capitol Hill Reporter for The New Republic in Washington DC, her elderly cats Lisa and Bailey, and her mountains of books.
