Our Leaders & Staff
God has appointed in the church first apostles, second prophets, third teachers; then deeds of power, then gifts of healing, forms of assistance, forms of leadership… 1 Corinthians 12:28
The Reverend Kathryn S. Irwin,
Pastor Irwin is an ordained pastor (Minister of Word and Sacrament) in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and a Certified Transitional Minister through the Interim Ministry Network. She holds a Bachelors in Social Work (BSW) from Pacific Lutheran University as well as a Masters in Divinity (MDiv) from the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia (now United Lutheran Seminary). Beyond these formal credentials, she is a committed and passionate member of the Body of Christ, and your Sibling in Christ through Baptism. All of Pastor Irwin’s ministry and life is rooted in this basic identity and connection to her siblings in Christ that God has created through Baptism. Pastor Irwin believes that the future of the Church is one that practices a radically welcoming hospitality, engaging in relationships that celebrate folks for who God has made them to be, and recognizing that the greater the genuine diversity of our communities, the clearer our glimpse of the image of God will be.
Pastor Irwin lives in Rahway with her spouse, four children, and two cats. In her community, she serves on the Board of Trustees of the Rahway Public Library and studies karate at the Karate Jutsu Dojo. In her leisure time, she enjoys running, going to the beach, and reading science fiction by authors of color and LGBTQ authors.
