Staci Imes joined us as our pastor on August 5th with her first Sunday at the pulpit being Sunday, August 11th.
Staci is currently under care of the Milwaukee Presbytery and will be examined and ordained in that Presbytery toward the end of August . She’ll then transfer her membership to Seattle Presbytery and be installed as the pastor at WPPC in September (date to be announced later). The Committee on Ministry in Seattle Presbytery has given Staci permission to lead us in worship prior to ordination, coordinating the service with Rev. Dick Erickson, our parish associate.
Staci graduated from Truman State University in 2004 with a BA in Communication Disorders, Marquette University in 2006 with a MS in Speech-Language Pathology and Pacific School of Religion with a Masters in Divinity in 2012. She is completing her CPE work now. Staci has experience working with smaller congregations, social justice activities working with Mexican immigrants in Arizona, has written worship music for Advent and Lent, spent several weeks walking on a portion of the Camino De Santiago de Compostela (an ancient pilgrimage trail in northern Spain), has worked with family and children ministry at her current church and is versed in reformed theology and liturgy. Staci brings with her a great appreciation for our reformed traditions as well as an excitement for how we can express those traditions in today’s church.
We are looking forward to her leadership in our worship experience!
