Vanessa is an Oakland native. She considers herself to be a black, queer, sex positive, fat positive, feminist, and womanist.
As a member of FCCO for the past several years, Vanessa has served in a variety of ways. She has grown spiritually through that service, her connection to this faith community, and is growing and developing her relationship with God.
Vanessa feels deeply honored to be given the opportunity to offer herself as a vessel once again at the pulpit of FCCO.
