Savannah Shivers, a native Austinite, joined Northridge Presbyterian Church in 2022. Through a dual degree program, Savannah graduated with her Master of Divinity (MDiv) from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary and her Master of Science in Social Work (MSSW) from the University of Texas at Austin in May of 2022.
Although Savannah has a great appreciation of Texas, she attended Davidson College in North Carolina and graduated with a Psychology major and a Hispanic Studies minor.
Starting in college, Savannah started exploring her love of being in community with and supporting people, especially children and youth, and since has continued to seek out the intersections and overlaps between clinical social work and pastoral care.
Savannah is in the process of becoming ordained as a Minister of Word and Sacrament and holds the Licensed Master Social Work (LMSW) credential.
Since coming on board, Savannah has felt very welcome and included and looks forward to using both pastoral and clinical social work skills in many different spheres of the Northridge world.
She strives to embody the “strengthen the faint-hearted” and “honor all persons” elements of the Northridge charge because she adamantly believes that all people are welcome and should feel seen, heard, loved, and included no matter their identities or backgrounds.
