Welcome Pastor Emily Ann Garcia Livingston!

We Welcome Reverend Emily Ann Garcia Livingston

St. John’s UCC Allentown is excited to announce that Reverend Emily Ann Garcia Livingston has answered our call for a new minister.  Reverend Livingston has a Bachelor of Arts degree from Eastern University/Management of Information Systems and a Masters degree in Library & Information Science from the University of Pittsburgh.  She earned her Master of Divinity degree from the Lutheran Theological Seminary in 2008; she was ordained in 2010.  She is a member of the Pennsylvania Southeast Conference and is currently a member of Living Water Church in Philadelphia.

While serving at Living Water Church, Reverend Livingston began a women’s ministry which centered on Bible stories examined from varying perspectives.  As a Chaplain CPE (Clinical Pastoral Education) Resident, Reverend Livingston worked closely with hospital staff and patients in several different departments, serving both the emotional and spiritual needs of all with compassion.   Her work at the Free Library of Philadelphia demonstrates her ability to coordinate the needs and interests of the diverse Philadelphia community with the many opportunities available at the library.

With her passion for teaching, her excellence in administration, her gentle warmth, and her enthusiasm for life, we of St. John’s are cheerfully awaiting her arrival as our next spiritual leader.

Reverend Livingston will begin full time Ministry at St. Johns on June 9th, 2019
