Recommendation from the APNC

There were so many things about Lisa that attracted us to her, and once we engaged in conversations with her, it was so easy because it was so right. She is extremely intelligent, she is creative; she has a mind for the big picture and strategic vision, but is detail-oriented at the same time; she is a hard worker; she is an incredible and thoughtful conversationalist; she is an excellent communicator; she has a deep spirit and huge heart. When she talks, you want to lean in, as to not miss a word. She is the author of three books, she is a part-time professor at Westminster College where she actually taught John Magnuson, our Associate Pastor for Discipleship. She is constantly reading, learning, teaching, and sharing. The committee is beyond excited to recommend the Rev. Dr. Lisa Nichols Hickman.
