Missionary Code: #982953
Elizabeth (Lisa) Lamb Nichols is a deaconess serving as a Church and Community Worker as Executive Director of the Henry Fork Service Center in Rocky Mount, Virginia. The Henry Fork Center provides Christian Education, educational enrichment, recreation and experiences with the arts for over 100 students throughout the year. The mission of the Center is "making God's love visible in our community," Lisa shares. "I have seen the staff and students work together to share God's love through words and actions. As the students learn the history of God's people, they are called to respond to God's love and invite others to join the journey."

Henry Fork works with volunteers from Ferrum College and work teams from across the southeast. Work teams share Vacation Bible School with elementary and middle school students, work on building repairs and lawn care, and work to complete the children's activity building. Work teams include participants of all ages and are welcome for a day, a weekend or a week.

Lisa previously served as the Director of Programs for the St. Andrews Center and Executive Director of the St. Elmo/Alton Park Partners in Tennessee. In those positions she directed after-school programs for Cub Scouts, ESOL high school students as well as 60 plus elementary students at the St. Andrews Center and South Chattanooga Recreation Center.

A native of Bristol, Tennessee, Lisa earned a B.A. degree in elementary education in 1980 from Emory and Henry College in Emory, Virginia.

Lisa enjoys enabling student participation in outdoor activities. Students have hiked around downtown Chattanooga, on the Riverwalk and in Chickamauga Battlefield. The have learned about geology and physical science through hands-on activities at Cloudland Canyon and Red Clay State Parks. "I'm looking forward to exploring the Blue Ridge Parkway and southern Virginia with our Henry Fork students. We are planning field trips to area parks, lakes and recreation facilities for our elementary and middle school students."

Lisa and husband, Gary Nichols, have two daughters - Sara, who is 15, and Jessica, age 11. Sara attends Franklin County High School and Jessica attends Benjamin Franklin Middle School. Both girls participate in afternoon programming at Henry Fork - Sara assists in the Pre-K and Kindergarten classroom and Jessica attends the middle/high school class and activities.
