Director of Administration Celebrates 35 Years
In 1980, Severns Valley Baptist Church was looking for someone to serve as an assistant to the pastor. When the application process had ended and the interviews were over, a woman was hired who, in many ways, would become the face of Severns Valley for the next 35 years! And what a truly wonderful woman Linda Polley is!
Linda has served alongside four senior pastors: Dr. Verlin C. Kruschwitz, Dr. J. Howard Cobble, Dr. Billy Compton, and Dr. Bill Langley. During Dr. Compton’s tenure, Linda was elevated from the position of Pastor’s Assistant to Administration Director. For more than a decade, Linda has served this great body of believers in that capacity.
Those who have served on committees and teams at Severns Valley appreciate the grace, strength and competence of this elegant lady. Not only is she incredibly capable in everything she does, she makes working together so much fun! Her joyful attitude is absolutely infectious!
Linda Polley’s respect goes far beyond the fellowship of Severns Valley Baptist Church. She is also esteemed and admired in our association, community and state. Over the years, she has coordinated and overseen several annual meetings of the Kentucky Baptist Convention at our facility, and she has served on the board of the Western Recorder for the convention.
Words fail in my attempt to describe Linda Polley, because she is so many things to so many people. She is a beautiful Christian…faithful wife…wonderful mother… doting grandmother…and dedicated coworker in the gospel. But for those of us who know her well, it is our privilege to call her “friend.”
We love you, Linda!
