Our Pastor

The Rev. Rebecca Hickok (Beckie) came to Waverly in the fall of 2007 as Transitional Pastor, intending to stay a short while.  But it seemed that God had a different plan for her and for Waverly.  Our match of passion for mission, children and youth and creative spirit-filled worship was such a good one, that after 2 years, with the Presbytery’s blessing, she became Waverly’s stated supply pastor, allowing us to continue our quest as “imperfect people seeking God’s perfect will.”  

Beckie, a graduate of Penn Hills High School (go, Big Red!), American University and the Pittsburgh Theological Seminary, lives in Charleroi PA with her pastor husband, the Rev. Dr. George Hickok (Joey) and an assortment of dogs and cats.  Her two grown sons, Rob, who does lights and cinematography and Brian, a screen writer and novelist both live in Austin, Texas.

         Beckie’s personal mission statement comes from a quote her mother-in-law came across years ago and shared with her:  the early Christians were characterized by 3 things:  great joy, no fear and always getting into trouble.  When she is able to embody all three of those, Beckie feels she is on the path God has set for her!
