interim PASTOR Kimberly Hester

Pastor Kim has been a pastor in the Oregon Synod since 2011 serving in SW Portland and Newberg. She began serving at Holy Trinity’s Interim November 1, 2018 and is eager to connect with the people of Holy Trinity and the neighborhood, asking questions of vitality, sustainability, and partnership in the Gospel. You can find Pastor Kim in and around the office on Tuesdays and Thursdays between the hours of 9:30a-3:00p - although it is always best to call or email to set up an appointment, as she isn’t always sitting behind the desk. She would love to grab a cup of coffee, brew, or lunch with you to get to know you, your heart, your questions, your passions, and see where God is moving the people of Holy Trinity.

The work that God has called the 4 million members of the ELCA to in the world goes on 24 hours a day, seven days a week with the guidance, insights and decision-making of rostered and lay leaders representing a diverse church and world. Between meetings of the ELCA Churchwide Assembly, the Church Council provides this guidance and leadership for the churchwide organization and the ELCA.

The Church Council with its day-to-day responsibilities is a vital aspect of how we strive to do God’s work in the world with thoughtfulness, integrity, respect and partnerships that share a common vision.
