I’m Lisa Parker – a M.Div. senior seeking ordination. I’m a native South Carolinian who grew up in a Holiness tradition (think conservative Baptist.) I became a Lutheran in college and discerned a call to ordained ministry. I’m an African-American female seeking to be an ELCA pastor as a first career – so that’s a little different by itself.
So, I came to LSTC because a pastor I came to respect during my undergrad years suggested it. And I wanted to see real snow at some point in my life – which I have now seen in abundance.
I’ll tell you more about myself as we go along.
