Rebecca Sack Mosley views pastoral ministry as an unveiling of the Kingdom of God. She grew up moving between Bangladesh and the United States. She was nurtured and then baptized at Long Green Valley Church of the Brethren, MD. Her first degree in international development (College of William and Mary) led her to three years as a Christian development worker with MCC in Botswana. There she felt confirmed in her calling to cross-cultural ministry. She received her M.Div from Regent College in Vancouver, BC, where a highlight was participation in the Regent chapel group.
She later learned how to be an American while serving for 5 years as an Associate Pastor of youth at the Poughkeepsie United Methodist Church in New York. The highlight of her ministry there was building a culture of missions among the youth of the church. Most recently, she and her husband Paul lived in Bujumbura, Burundi for 6 years, working as Co-Representatives of Mennonite Central Committee Rwanda/Burundi. During that assignment, she worked as an “undercover pastor” and was invited to lead multi-cultural worship in a variety of settings in East Africa. Preparing worship and drawing on the gifts of the people of God are exciting moments of discovery for her.
Rebecca gets a lot of energy from planting (and weeding) her garden, bird-watching, swimming and jogging in her neighborhood. She also loves singing (early music, gospel, folk, African choruses… ) and folk dancing! She is eager to learn more about the realities of Baltimore City and how people of faith can be a relevant force for justice and change in our community.
Rebecca married Paul Mosley in 2003 – at North Baltimore Mennonite Church. They share a history of living overseas in Bangladesh, and their families have been close for all of Rebecca’s life. Paul is continuing a second career in international development; in his first career, he was a dancer, choreographer and lecturer at Vassar College. Rebecca and Paul have two sons in elementary school: Oren and David. Oren is fascinated by animated creatures at this moment, and David’s great joy is turning over stones and discovering bugs and salamanders.
