Mary Blankson, Finance Director
Mary grew up Methodist in rural Maine, but her faith deepened when she joined a multi-ethnic fellowship at Tufts University. Her spiritual growth continued when she came to New Haven for nursing school, at which time she joined the Vineyard Christian Fellowship in West Haven. Since graduating from Yale School of Nursing, Mary has cared for underserved populations throughout Connecticut in a number of capacities. After many years as a nurse practitioner in New London, Mary obtained her doctoral degree in nursing from Johns Hopkins University and now serves as the Nurse Executive supervising the work of nurses and medical assistants in the clinics of Connecticut’s largest federally qualified health center. As her career began to flourish, she felt God calling her family to help church plants established along the shoreline. That journey eventually led her to Replica Church, where every member of her family helps facilitate some aspect of the Sunday service. Mary serves as our Finance Director in handling our budgets and keeping records of our income and expenses—something she naturally loves to do.
