Nancy Lundquist

Elder – Building & Grounds

As a lifelong Presbyterian I was happy to find a Presbyterian church in my neighborhood when I moved to west Longview in 1975. LPC has been a good ‘fit’ for me ever since that first Sunday and has helped me grow in my faith. When I retired from my nurse practitioner career in 2004 I was able to devote more time to the church and have served as both an Elder and a Deacon. LPC is truly my church home and has encouraged and supported me through all these years.

Robert Mumford

Elder – Worship

Robert, and his husband Gary, live in Longview. They have been involved in Longview Presbyterian Church since 2012. Robert has been active in the community in the 4-H Horse program, with his many singing activities, taking care of goldfish ponds and the yard. He enjoys the church activities and as a retired social worker he continues to try to help others.

Marilyn
Melville-Irvine

Elder – Mission

Marilyn was raised in San Francisco but has spent the last several decades in Longview. She is a charter member of LPC and has been active here since arriving in Longview. She loves seeing the growth that has occurred at the church, both in numbers and in commitment to social justice issues.

Melinda
Hutcheson-Horn

Elder – Christian Education

A life-long resident of Longview, Melinda found a welcoming home in LPC after a long absence from religious life and treasures LPC’s passion for God’s extravagant love, honest conversations, and community justice. She can most often be found outside playing in the dirt with her husband and two young children.
