Interim Pastor

Our Interim Pastor is Kathy Keener.

Kathy grew up in Eugene, Oregon, attending Central Presbyterian Church with her educator parents.  After earning her BA in Peace Studies, Political Science, and German, she attended McCormick Theological Seminary and received her Master of Divinity in 1986.  After serving as pastor for a small rural church in Illinois for five years, Kathy completed ten subsequent interim ministries.  

Creativity, compassion, enthusiasm, and intelligence are what Kathy brings to our congregation, according to those she has worked with before. She describes herself as a Mary Poppins who will blow into our lives with the tools in her bag that will help us to create energizing spiritual experiences, discover and build on our strengths, and then blow back out of our lives once her work is done and we are ready to welcome a called pastor.
