Nellwyn Beamon – Parish Secretary
As Parish Secretary, I am your first point of contact when calling Ascension. In addition to answering and directing phone calls, I take care of all the things that come up in a church office environment. Often that means directing requests or comments to members of the Vestry commissions, other staff members, or community resources. Some of my electronic duties include the website, social media, and the email announcements and newsletter. In conclusion, if you don’t know who to ask or what to do, give me a call.
Although I serve Ascension as the Parish Secretary, I consider music to be my true vocation. (I graduated with a degree in church music from Mars Hill College and a certificate from the Leadership Program for Musicians –LPM.) I have served as Minister of Music in several churches in the Tidewater area. Immediately prior to my job at Ascension, I also worked as a stagehand at several of the local venues.
My husband Richard Jones and I were married here at Ascension in 2010 during a Sunday morning service. We are raising our grandson Jaimon Jones who attends the Day School and was baptized here in August 2013.
