The call committee unanimously recommends Pastor Trish Reedstrom for our Associate Pastor position. Pastor Trish bases her ministry on the abundant relationship we each have with God, and then in turn the relationships we share with each other. She believes that we should minister where the people are, both within the walls of our congregation and out in the community. She shared with the call committee that her theology relies on “God’s grace for all, all of the time.” While this will be Trish’s first call, she brings extensive life experience from her career in social work, including work with at-risk, addicted and other often invisible members of our community.
Following two decades with Blue Earth County social services, Pastor Trish knew that God called her to preach the word of God, at which point she started the second phase of her career as a student at Luther Seminary, including an internship with Trinity Lutheran in St. Peter. She has most recently been serving as an Interim Associate Pastor at Trinity. Some of you may already know Pastor Trish, as she has preached at Christ the King while being mentored by Pastor Patrick. Pastor Trish has three grown children (one of whom also serves as pastor), and lives with her spouse in Rapidan.
Please join us on Thursday, April 2 at 6:30 pm in the Community Room for a congregational vote on calling Pastor Trish Reedstrom as our Associate Pastor.
