Our Pastor

Rev. Dr. Janet Boyd

Rev. Dr. Janet Boyd began serving our congregation as a designated

interim pastor in March of 2019 and was officially called as settled pastor in

November 2019. She previously served congregations in Hinsdale IL,

Evanston IL, and Delphi IN and worked as a pastoral psychotherapist at

the Elkhart Samaritan Center and as an on-call chaplain at Elkhart General

Hospital.

Her ministerial training was completed at Garrett Evangelical Theological

Seminary (United Methodist) and Christian Theological Seminary

(Disciples of Christ). She describes herself as highly ecumenical, since

she grew up as a Presbyterian and in her first career as a writer worked for

the United Methodist Publishing House and Lutheran Social Services. She

is ordained in the United Church of Christ and proud of its history of

extending a broad welcome to all people.

Janet lives in Elkhart with a couple of cats, Toby and Poppy. She insists

however, that she is NOT a “Cat Lady.”
