Rev. Dr. Thomas Harvey pastored for seventeen years in Lexington, Virginia before coming to Bridgewater Baptist as Senior Minister from 2001-04. He and his family spent two prior summers in Middleton supplying Baptist Churches in the Valley. Dr. Harvey also was interim at BBC four years ago. He is married to Nancy Schoenbaechler of Louisville. They have three children and seven grandchildren, many of whom have visited the South Shore and have discovered a “kindred spirit”.
I spent the first 40 years of my life living in Halifax with my husband Tom where we raised our 3 children. I attended Mount St. Vincent University and taught both in the public and private schools as an Elementary School Teacher. When my husband received a call into the ministry, we moved to the South Shore of Nova Scotia for his first Pastorate. I then entered the Lay Pastor Training Course with the Convention of Atlantic Baptist Churches and finished their 3 year program. God used these opened doors and led me to Visitation Pastor at Bridgewater Baptist. In my spare time I babysit some of my six grandsons – this is what keeps me young!
Debbie Zwicker began as the organist and choir director in Bridgewater in August 1995. She is the youngest of five children and grew up in a family that surrounded itself with music and church activities. Some of her favorite musical memories are of multi-generations of family members gathering in “the music room” for an evening of music and fun. Debbie lives in Scarsdale with her husband Sterling and two children, Dominique and Jackson.
