Leslie Elliott is our church Administrative Assistant.​

Leslie has been a Church Administrative Assistant for more than five years and previously comes from the dental field where she was a dental Assistant/Administrative Assistant for more than 15 years. She switched careers because she was always involved in church since she was 11 years old and wanted to use her talents in helping others in another way. 

She is married to David Elliott, and they have a son named Carson, as well as two fur children-their dog Grace and Cat-Raven.

In her spare time she enjoys doing interior design, decorating and refinishing furniture. 

Our Pianist

Lisa Hornsby is our church pianist and choir director.

Lisa began playing the piano as a very young child, with her goal always being to play in Church. That goal became a reality when she was just 14 years old, playing for various military chapels during her father's career in the Army. Why Church? "I figure that God blessed me with the ability to play, so it is only fitting to use that gift in a way to honor Him." 

She has been married to her husband, Roger, for 35 years, and together they share 3 children: Brad (McKenzie), Jessi (Logan), and Taylor. The Hornsby's have also been blessed with two grandsons, Colton, and Landon. 

 In her spare time, she enjoys teaching private piano lessons to young and old alike throughout our West Point community

Our Pastor

Pastor Betsy Basehore is serving West Point UMC for the second time. She was the pastor from 2005 until 2012, when she early retired, and began serving this congregation again as a retired pastor in January of 2022. She and her husband, Kerry, live in King and Queen County. They share three grown children and four grandchildren. 

Betsy grew up in Pennsylvania and New York state but has lived in Virginia since 1980 when Kerry came to work for Dominion Energy. She graduated from Penn State in 1970 with a Bachelor’s degree in anthropology and was called by God to be a preacher in 1990, receiving a Masters of Divinity from Union Theological Seminary in 1994. She was ordained an elder in the United Methodist Church in 1995.

She enjoys reading, travel, photography, anything having to do with boats or water or the beach, scrapbooking, and collecting cookbooks (and sometimes cooking!) She is a two-time survivor of colon cancer and believes strongly in the healing power of faith. She loves to preach, teach Sunday School, laugh, go out to lunch, and is an insatiable life-long learner.
