Grace Southworth Nadeau graduated from Rhodes College in Memphis, Tennessee with a Bachelor’s degree in Spanish and a minor in Religious Studies. After graduation, Grace returned home to Atlanta to attend Candler School of Theology at Emory University. She earned her Master of Divinity from Candler in 2017.
Grace has worked at her home church in Buckhead, Peachtree Road United Methodist Church, for three and a half years as one of the Associate Directors of Youth Ministry. She is the director of the Confirmation class, coordinates all trip planning and logistics, guides the Youth Leadership Team, and helps oversee the pastoral care of youth as well.
Two of Grace’s biggest passions are caring for youth and fostering youths’ ability to become influential and compassionate leaders in their community. Through her work at PRUMC, Grace seeks to help youth navigate a world often filled with uncertainties. She hopes to help youth recognize they are loved and accepted exactly as they are while building up their faith.
In her spare time, Grace enjoys spending time with family and friends and attending yoga classes. Grace is married to Zack Nadeau, a Georgia native, and they reside in Dunwoody with their two cats, Palmer and Rey.
