PROFILE: Amelie Wilmer

Melissa Scott Sinclair profiles Amelie Wilmer for Richmond Magazine:

Four weeks ago, Wilmer became the newest pastor of Richmond’s oldest church: St. John’s Church. The iconic white building at the crest of Church Hill was built in 1741, but the congregation traces its founding to 1611.

Now, she’s charged with leading this 400-year-old congregation into the future. In total, congregants number about 300 — fewer than the number of tourists who come to the church to witness the Patrick Henry “Liberty or Death” reenactment on an average Sunday afternoon. About 80 to 100 people attend weekly services.
