Meet Our Staff

The Rev. Penny Nash
Interim Rector | 804 288 7811 x105 |

Penny is a native North Carolinian but has lived and worked in several cities ranging from New York to Atlanta before settling in Virginia ten years ago. She is graduate of Florida State University with a degree in Creative Writing and earned her Master of Divinity from the Candler School of Theology at Emory University in Atlanta. Born and raised a Southern Baptist, Penny migrated to The Episcopal Church by way of All Saints Church in Atlanta, the parish that eventually sponsored her for ordination, and she was ordained in the Diocese of Atlanta in 2007. She served several congregations in the Atlanta area before accepting a call to join the clergy staff at Bruton Parish Church in Williamsburg. In 2014 she moved to Richmond to serve   

at St. Stephen’s on Grove Avenue. In recent years, Penny began exploring a call to intentional interim ministry, and she has been certified for that ministry by both the Interim Ministry Network and the Center for Congregational Health after completing coursework and training through those organizations. Prior to coming to All Saints Richmond, she served as the interim rector at St. Michael’s Episcopal Church in Colonial Heights. 


Penny is married to Tom Cox, a retired attorney who teaches in the OSHER Lifelong Learning program at the University of Richmond and serves on the boards of The Micah Initiative and Communities in Schools. They have three adult children and two cats. She loves to travel and enjoys photography, reading, listening to audiobooks while walking outdoors, and birdwatching.

Dale Smith
Seminarian | 804 288 7811  |

Dale grew up in rural Cumberland County, Virginia, where he was raised in the Methodist Church. He received a B.A. in English from James Madison University, a M.F.A. in Creative Writing from Virginia Commonwealth University, and a Master of Theological Studies from Union Presbyterian Seminary. 


He became an Episcopalian by way of the parish of St. Mark’s, on the Boulevard, where he discerned a call to ordination. As part of his path toward Holy Orders, Dale is currently completing a Certificate in Anglican Studies via a low-residency program at Church Divinity School of the Pacific (an Episcopal seminary in Berkeley, CA), as well as contextual educational experiences. His first such experience took place this past fall at Cedarfield, a continuing care retirement community in the West End, where he interned as a chaplain. His second will take place here at All Saints, where he looks forward to participating in All Saints’ ministries, sharing his passion for Jesus through teaching and preaching, and gaining insight on the ins and outs of Episcopal worship, polity, and parish life.

Before starting this ordination journey, Dale was a member of the Department of English at VCU, where he taught literature and creative writing courses, in addition to advising many students. A longtime resident of Richmond, he lives near Carytown with his husband John, a retired nurse practitioner. They enjoy dinners at The Daily and breakfasts at Joe’s Inn, off-season visits to the Outer Banks, and fondly remember those pre-Covid days when they could plan trips to London.

Scott Hayes
Director of Music | 804 288 7811 x108 |

Scott was born and raised as a Methodist pastor's son in West Virginia.  While growing up, he sang in the church choirs in the churches his father served, and decided at an early age to become a church musician.  In his spare time, he enjoys tinkering with computers, working on his house, and any project he can get his hands on.  Since moving to Richmond, he's become a roller coaster enthusiast, and can be found on the tallest and fastest coaster with the shortest line.  Scott, his wife Amy, and their daughter live in Bon Air.  

Serving as a church musician for almost 25 years, Scott began his career at the age of 15 with his first church position in Athens, West Virginia. After high school, he moved to Ohio to continue his education, and attended Ohio Wesleyan and Cedarville Universities. For 10 years, he served as the Tonal Director of Muller Pipe Organ Company in Croton, Ohio (a role he continues in a part-time capacity). 


In 2012, Scott earned his Masters of Music in Organ Performance from Cleveland Institute of Music, where he was a student of Todd Wilson. Before joining the All Saints Staff at the beginning of 2016, he was the organist and choirmaster at St. Luke’s in Granville, Ohio for over 10 years.

As Director of Music at All Saints, he is responsible for coordinating all worship music as well as overseeing the many different choirs. He is passionate about showing God's presence through music, and helping raise new generations of musicians through music education. Scott’s favorite liturgy is the Easter Vigil, the Saturday right before Easter, because it tells the "whole story", while the music and liturgy focus on the central goal of resurrection.
