Dr. Nancy Vrechek

Dr. Nancy Vrechek, and her husband Michael DeCastro, joined JupiterFIRST Church in 1987. Michael is the Bass Player on Sundays. They raised their two sons, Daniel and Bobby in all the faith activities here. Nancy was the Church Moderator in 1993 when the church called Pastor Barry as Senior Minister.

God means for us to be supportive of each other and supportive counseling in the content of the church helps us all move closer to our relationship with God. This is a covenant we have with each other to support one another. Dr. Vrechek is a licensed Psychologist and Marriage and Family Therapist, with a private practice in Jupiter. She has been providing services and consultation to the community, Episcopal Diocese, and various business and professional societies for 30 years. Click here to see her full resume.
