Stewardship Development

I was born in Boston, MA and served in my first church there after finishing a degree in Biochemistry at Johns Hopkins University in 1979. Since then, I have ministered in Carroll, Iowa; Notre Dame, Indiana and Sumner, Washington as a Pastoral Associate and Parish Life Coordinator. My ministry has focused on stewardship development, formation and support of church leaders and adult faith formation. I am also a certified mediator and work across the country in various projects on conflict resolution.

I am married to an amazing musician, George, and we are the proud parents of four young adult children, whom I consider one of my greatest sources of continuing education. I also hold a Master of Divinity degree from the University of Notre Dame and certificates in Diversity Training, Health Coaching and Bereavement Ministry.

I am a ‘people’ person and enjoy discovering people’s talents and passions. I’d love to know what you are really good at, so send me an e-mail at: carolg@smlutheran.org or stop by my office at church on Tuesdays or Wednesdays!
