An image of Sara Varnado in front of the stain glass windows in St Mark's Sanctuary

Sara was born in Louisiana, but grew up in North Carolina where much of her family still lives. She is a lifelong Presbyterian who spent time as a member of youth groups, choirs, and mission teams. She worked for six years as a college career counselor until she heard God calling her in a different direction. She attended Columbia Theological Seminary and graduated in 2007 with her Master of Divinity degree. Sara spent much of her ministry serving nonprofit agencies in Nashville, TN and Asheville, NC before moving to Florida. She is excited to be serving God and St. Mark’s as Parish Associate.
