The Reverend Nancy Springer, Rector

Mother Nancy was ordained to the deaconate in June of 2012 and then to the priesthood in December of that year.  She is a “second career” priest and spent the first 20 years after college working as a Technical Writer for various industries. 

She went to seminary at Wycliffe College in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.  But don’t let that throw you – she’s Texan through and through.  She grew up in College Station, spend summers and holidays at her grandparents’ home in Martin County and spent most of her adult life in San Antonio. 

Her first assignment out of Seminary was at St. John’s Episcopal Church in McAllen, Texas and in 2016, she transferred as the Associate Rector to St. Alban’s in Harlingen, Texas.  She and her husband Jim were married in September 2013 and together have 6 adult children and 12 grandchildren.  They do have 3 dogs still living at home.  Jim retired from nursing in 2016 so that he could spend more time golfing.   

Mother Nancy joined St. Nicholas’ as the Rector in April 2018.  She and Jim and their three dogs are happy to call Midland home and look forward to serving God and the Kingdom through St. Nicholas’ for many years to come.
