Jen Einspahr – Northwest Association
I am a MID in the Northwest Association and a member of Zion UCC in South Bend, Indiana. I am a student at Eden Theological Seminary in Saint Louis, Missouri with a projected graduation date of May 2020. I find living so far from my home church a challenge. However, attending seminary is a joy for me. Being a seminary student has provided me with opportunities such as attending the Samuel DeWitt Proctor Conference. I am currently serving as a student pastor at a UCC church in Saint Louis, Missouri. I am passionate about issues of peace and social justice; each opportunity to engage in this important work is another step towards my future. I am still discerning what I may be called to do in the future, but am confident that when the time is right, I will be shown an opportunity for my gifts to continue to blossom.
