Wain Wesberry

Senior Pastor

Hi, I am Rev. Dr. Wain Wesberry, Pastor of First Presbyterian Church of Fernandina Beach.  I am a native of South Carolina.  I spent my formative years in Batesburg-Leesville where God’s grace often came in the form of juicy summer peaches the size of softballs, trips to Shealy’s BBQ, and times spent with family and friends on Lake Murray.  I attended Presbyterian College (Go Blue Hose!) and graduated with a B.A. in English.  At PC, God graced me with Sarah who is the love of my life and who became my wife in 1997.  During our seminary years in Atlanta, Georgia we worshiped and served at Rock Spring Presbyterian while I was working on my M.Div. degree.  After seminary, God led us to Greenville, South Carolina (Sarah’s hometown) where I served at St. Giles Presbyterian Church and Fourth Presbyterian Church.  God also graced us with two wonderful children during those years, Will and Aubrey June.  Before coming to Fernandina Beach, we made a move back to Clinton, South Carolina to serve First Presbyterian Church.  I finished up a doctoral degree from Columbia Seminary during our time there and really enjoyed the work God enabled us to do to fight hunger in the community.  God’s grace showed up yet again, this time in the form of the call to come and serve on Amelia Island.  What a gift!  We love the people and the area and are dreaming of serving in such ways to make First Presbyterian as faithful, caring, and generous as possible.  Some of my hobbies and interests include: swimming, golf, fishing, reading, singing, playing guitar, and cooking.  Thank you for taking the time to visit my bio.  Come worship with us one Sunday (8:30 or 11 AM).

I would love to meet you and get to know you personally.  The body of Christ is incomplete without you.
