Jim Vaught
Interim PastorIn 1983 Jim and his family moved to Fredericksburg for Jim to serve as the first Chaplain and Director of Pastoral Care with Mary Washington Hospital.  After serving as Chaplain for five years, he began serving in other capacities with the hospital for fifteen additional years.  While at Mary Washington Hospital, he served as an interim pastor in area churches including Round Hill from June 1987 – December 1988 and again for three months in 1999 prior to Ted James coming to serve as pastor.  After twenty years with Mary Washington Hospital, Jim was called in 2003 to serve as Co-Pastor of Manassas Baptist Church, a new position for a changing church.  After three years he was asked by Virginia Baptists to help in creating a new matching system for churches and pastors. He helped to create the first “Pastoral Transition and Pastor Search Handbook” for Virginia Baptist Churches.  In 2007 he was called to Ferry Farm Baptist to serve as the Transition Pastor following a long-tenured pastor.  In 2012 he served as the Intentional Interim for Hillsboro Baptist in Crozet and in 2014 began serving as the Intentional Interim at Tomahawk Baptist in Midlothian.    Jim was certified as an Interim Pastor in 2007 and as an Intentional Interim Pastor in 2009 by the Center for Congregational Health.  In 2015 he was also certified as an Intentional Interim Facilitator by The Center. He is a graduate of Southern Baptist Seminary (M.Div) and Union Theological Seminary in Virginia (D.Min.).  Jim and Jeanne, a retired nurse, have been married for 47 years and have two adult children, Scott and Lindsay.  Jim enjoys sports, traveling, reading, movies and music.

A native of King George, she served churches in the Fredericksburg Area as Minister of Youth and Music for 9 years prior to coming to Round Hill.
Barbara Jenkins
Barbara has served as church secretary since 2009, but she is by no means a newcomer to Round Hill Baptist. Having grown up in this church, she felt led to return and serve when the opportunity arose. She comes to us after working in the Development Office of St. Margaret’s School in Tappahannock for 17 years. When she’s not keeping the office running smoothly here at RHBC, she’s an active member of St. James Episcopal Church in Montross.


Steve Barnum
Church Pianist

Not surprisingly, Steve Barnum has also served Round Hill since 2000 as the church pianist. He attributes this to having the wisdom and good taste to marry the Minister of Music. Originally from Pittsburgh, Steve completed his Engineering degree at West Virginia University, and works for the federal government when he’s not working for Donna!
