Expressing God's Love, Engaging in God's Justice

Rev. Alice Rose Tewell

Rev. Alice Rose Tewell serves as the Associate Pastor/ Deputy Head of Staff at The New York Avenue Presbyterian Church.  She is passionate about integrating children and youth into the vital urban ministries at NYAPC, encouraging each person to show up both in places of brokenness and in places of joy, and promoting a spirit of openness towards experiencing God’s presence in everyday moments of life.  She is a lover of the outdoors, and connects to God most concretely when running (often pushing a stroller), gardening, and playing with her family at neighborhood parks.

She began her ministry at NYAPC in July of 2014.  She is a 2004 graduate of Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut majoring in International Studies with a focus in Asia and Chinese.  She is a 2009 graduate of Princeton Theological Seminary, and was ordained as a Minister of the Word and Sacrament (Teaching Elder) in 2010 at her home church St. Peter’s by the Sea Presbyterian Church in California. Prior to coming to NYAPC, Alice was the Associate Pastor from 2010-2013 and Acting Senior Pastor from 2013-2014 at First Presbyterian Church of Ithaca, New York. She also served as Youth Director at Old Presbyterian Meeting House in Alexandria, VA from 2008-2010. Prior to seminary and post-college, Alice worked for Beijing Foreign Studies University in Beijing, China. Alice grew up in San Pedro, California, a suburb of Los Angeles.

Alice lives in Arlington, VA with her husband, Adam, two young children, and faithful dog, Maddie.
