This Sunday, we welcome our new Bridge Pastor, Karen Wright. Rev. Karen Wright is an ordained minister in the PC(USA). She served as the Director of Christian Education at Westminster Presbyterian, Austin, TX, and became a Certified Christian Educator. Upon moving with her wife, Rev. Sally Wright, to the Kansas City area, Karen was ordained in 2014 and served as Associate Pastor at Southminster Presbyterian Church until the beginning of 2023. At the beginning of the year Karen embarked on a journey as a podcaster and author. Karen has a weekly podcast Faith in the Cracks and published a book I Miss Grandma this summer. Serving as a Bridge Pastor, Karen has found a space to use her ministerial gifts as well as continue to have time to write and seek opportunities to publish.
