We are so happy to announce the arrival of Reverend Mark Braden as Northminster’s Interim Pastor. Rev. Braden has specialized in transitional interim ministry and has a heart for pastoral care, preaching and working with small groups. He has served congregations in Prairie Village, Leavenworth, Paola and Stanley in Kansas, and Kansas City and Raytown in Missouri. On the denominational level he has served the Presbyterian Church USA on the Synod Executive Committee, Heartland Presbytery Council and the Committee on Ministry.

“I have a good sense of humor, enjoy music and theatre and love to travel. My theological motto is, “Live simply, love generously, care deeply speak kindly, act justly and leave the rest to God.” I am excited to join with you in this time of transition and looking forward to having fun together as we go about Christ’s work at Northminster.”
