Rev. Vicki Harrington Franch
Pastor for Pastoral Care
Vicki has been a daughter of Peachtree Presbyterian since she was 10 years old. She thinks of this church as an extension of her home, and of the congregation as her family. Her father, Dr Frank Harrington, served as senior pastor of Peachtree for 29 years. She considers her ministry here to be “a dream come true”.
Vicki attended the Westminster Schools, Duke University and Princeton Theological Seminary. While getting her seminary degree, she served at Bryn Mawr Presbyterian Church, Newtown Square Presbyterian Church, and served as a chaplain for Presbyterian Hospital in Philadelphia, PA. Vicki is married to Dr Hal Franch, who is a nephrologist and associate professor of medicine at Emory. They met in high school and have been married since 1983. They have three children, Carolina, Michael and James. “I am privileged to be in Pastoral Care because I am able to share some of the most important milestones of life with the people of God here at PPC. I constantly remember the Good Shepherd, Jesus, as I serve this beloved flock, and I want to feed and care for them after His example. I also get to work with people who share in the care of our congregation: Stephen ministers, pastoral care teams, elders, colleagues, support group leaders, and the resources at the Peachtree Counseling Center.
