Staff and Lay Leadership

Interim Minister, Rev. A.J. Galazen

Rev. A.J. comes to us from Cornucopia, Wisconsin. His call to ministry is concentrated in three areas: worship, healing, and transformation.

more

Worship is the work of the people, building bridges of meaning between theologies. Worship opens deep themes of spirituality and social justice while responding to the needs of the congregation and the community.

Healing is the path that promotes recovery and peace. Healing supports both personal and communal forgiveness. A healing focus helps people create lives of integrity and joy.

Transformation is the way that the Spirit of Life moves with mystery and grace through our world. Life is change, and in its transitions, we find questions, grief, laughter and love. Life is a gift, and we are blessed by sharing our lives and stories in beloved community.
