Pastor Gennie Bowles is originally from Fishersville, Virginia in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley.  She received a physics degree from Virginia Tech in 2013 before pursuing her call to ministry at Candler School of Theology at Emory University in Atlanta.  There she worked in prison, hospital and local church setting ministries.  

Gennie has a passion for worship as a "home base" of the church, from which we are sent out and return back in the course of our own journey with God.  After graduating with her MDiv from Chandler in 2016, Gennie took her first appointment in Bath County where she enjoyed working with two lovely country churches.  

Gennie enjoys reading and listening to podcasts; she is a lifelong learner.  She also likes to experience the beauty of God's creating while hiking, kayaking or riding her motorcycle.
