“I am passionate about authentic relationship-building as people continue to explore their relationship with God, and I always hope that I can offer myself as a conduit to the Spirit.”
Sarah began her work as an ordained minister at Second Church in Indianapolis as a Lake Fellow Resident in Pastoral Ministry. There she was mentored by seasoned pastors in a very large church setting and was able to experiment with different worship styles and liturgical art.
In 2011, she was called to serve as Associate Pastor for Member Care at Ladue Chapel Presbyterian Church in St. Louis, MO. There, she developed a thriving ministry that expanded pastoral care, created a hospitality team that trained more than 100 greeters, planned large-scale fellowship events, revived a young adult ministry, and launched several successful social media and print campaigns. She also wrote a personal blog about ministry and recently became a member of a new clergy peer group of young pastors called By The Vine.
As Westminster’s Interim Associate Pastor for Congregational Life, Sarah oversees communications, hospitality, and fellowship, including the young adult group WestConnect.
Sarah was born to a Presbyterian minister father and attorney mother and raised in Wheaton, IL, where she was given the gift of faith and affirmed in her call to ministry at First Presbyterian. She attended St. Olaf College where she sang in the choir, “jogged” cross country, and majored in studio art and art history. She earned her Master’s of Divinity from Luther Seminary, where she was under the care of Westminster’s session.
Sarah and her husband Ben are parents to toddler Gwendolyn.
