Clergy and Staff

The Rev. Ginny Bain Inman, Rector
rector@standrewsgso.org

The Reverend Ginny Bain Inman became the 12th Rector of St. Andrew’s in February of 2020. Ginny received her M.Div. and J.D. from Vanderbilt University and a certificate in Anglican Studies from Virginia Theological Seminary. She was ordained to the priesthood in 2005 by the Most Rev. Michael Curry during an ice storm and knew then that priesthood was not for the faint of heart. Ginny first came to Greensboro as a corporate attorney and found the city to be a community that valued compassion and connection. She has served churches in Washington, D.C.; Georgia; and North Carolina. She most recently worked as the Acting Officer for Lifelong Learning and Formation on the Bishop’s staff with the Diocese of North Carolina.

Ginny enjoys the rich traditions of the Church, while exploring new ways to help people grow spiritually and deepen their relationship with God. She seeks to build community everywhere she goes. Ginny also serves as a coach at The Center for Creative Leadership. 

Ginny is married to Stephen, who works as a lawyer, and they have two beloved sons. Ginny grew up in central Florida and still misses their family farm and the smell of oranges. She counts among the gifts of her life her late grandmother, a great love of the outdoors, and good friends who are quick to share their humor, wine, and wisdom.

The Rev. Pam Haynes, Deacon
deacon@standrewsgso.org

The Reverend Pam Haynes joined St. Andrew’s as deacon in February 2022. Pam was ordained as a deacon in March 2021 and came to St. Andrew’s from St. Anne’s Episcopal Church, Winston-Salem. She has served in many capacities within the Episcopal Church, through Cursillo, the Kairos Prison Ministry, and as a charter member of two Daughters of the King chapters. Deacon Pam, who was born and raised in Washington, D.C., Pam has a passion for affordable housing and supporting the homeless. Interested in public service since her youth, she writes, “I have now come full circle in my activism in serving on the Bishop’s Committee for Affordable Housing and in my volunteer work with City with Dwellings, helping people move from homelessness to housing. I get the most pleasure from life by helping others. I believe I was born to serve, and I am happiest when I help others.”

Deacons play a particular role in connecting the church to the community and the community to the church. Rev. Pam will be engaged with our outreach and mission efforts and provide pastoral care support. As a deacon, she will also have a significant presence in our Sunday worship, through reading the Gospel, setting the table, and sometimes preaching.
