Rev. Staci Imes accepted a call to serve WPPC in August of 2013 and quickly fell in love with this dynamic, creative, inclusive and justice-minded community of faith. Pastor Staci strives to teach and live a model of engaged spirituality and she enjoys folding the visual arts and music into all aspects of her work. As a faith leader, activist, and artist, Pastor Staci is passionate about ecumenical and interfaith social justice work. She has worked and volunteered as an advocate and educator for programs and issues related to immigration, homelessness, and peace-making.
Prior to entering ministry, Staci worked as a bilingual speech and language pathologist, with a B.S. from Truman State University and a M.S from Marquette University. Later, she served as a Young Adult Volunteer for the Presbyterian Church (USA) on the US/Mexico border and earned a Master of Divinity from the Pacific School of Religion in Berkeley, CA.
