Please welcome our new interim Pastor, Ellen Mills!
"I raised my children in Bloomington, and had a career as a controller for a not-for-profit before I wrestled with God calling me to ministry. I entered seminary in 2004, first at Christian Theological Seminary in Indianapolis, then Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago, where I got my degree. I had hoped to be assigned to the Indiana-Kentucky synod, but the 'pastor draft' sent me instead to the north/west lower Michigan synod. The interviews I was assigned were not a fit, so I was sent to the region, and I round a home in the Northeastern Ohio synod where I served a parish of two churches for 7 years. Between seminary and my call to Ohio, I had been an interim for Corydon Parish in Harrison County, Indiana, serving them for 9 months until they called their pastor.
After those years away, I chose to be closer to my son who lives in Bloomington, and moved there in January. I have been doing supply and then sabbatical coverage for the pastor in Bloomington. I am glad to be back in Indiana, and look forward to working with you. I am a gardener and birder, and enjoy connecting the Gospel message to our daily lives."
