Pastor Paula Murray
The Rev. Paula Murray is a native of the West, born in Montana and raised in Idaho. She is a graduate of the College of Idaho in Caldwell, Idaho, the University of California, Santa Barbara, California, and the Lutheran Theological Seminary in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.
Pastor says of her call to ministry, “I was ten years old when the Holy Spirit called me to the Altar and the Pulpit. Pastor means “shepherd”, and while it took some time to act on the call and have that call validated by the Church, it has been an honor and a blessing to serve our Lord as one of His under shepherds.”
Pastor is married to Henry Stuckert and they have two adult sons, Adam and Ian Stuckert. Pastor likes to spend time with family and friends, read, write books people will probably never read as it seems unlikely they will ever be finished, cook, draw, and talk about Jesus.
