Marsha Sebastian is pastor of BBUPC (Brookline Boulevard United Presbyterian Church.)
She is married to Robert Sebastian and they have two sons, Colin and Luke. Along with her parents, Jim and Doris Mosley, and brother, Mark, they joined Southminster United Presbyterian Church in 1964, shortly after moving to Pittsburgh.
Marsha attended Grove City College and earned a Bachelor of Arts in English Education; she also received a Master of Science in Secondary Administration from Duquesne University.
After careers in teaching and marketing, she came under care of Pittsburgh Presbytery in 1989 and (completing Seminary courses on her personal “Moses Plan”) was ordained on Dec. 30, 2000.
Her first call was serving as an Interim Pastor at Olivet UPC (United Presbyterian Church.) She was called to the Brookline congregation in 2003.
Friends in Christ there, and throughout the Presbytery, help Brookline Blvd. witness to His love through acts of prayer, charity and education in neighborhood ministries.
Marsha recently had an opportunity to express BBUPC’s gratitude to our Presbytery partners, and especially Southminster’s Presbyterian Women.
She recently completed a magazine “quiz” with her nieces and her answers described her as “brimming with hope!” Since one of her favorite Bible verses is from 2 Corinthians 1:9-11, she thinks the magazine might be on to something.
Indeed we felt that we had received the sentence of death so that we would not rely on ourselves but on God who raises the dead. He who rescued us from so deadly a peril will continue to rescue us; on him we have set our hope that he will rescue us again . . . 2 Cor. 1:9-11
