Pastor Sue Seiffert
Rev. Sue Seiffert began as Interim Pastor of Spirit of Grace in July 2020. A Lutheran clergyperson, Pastor Sue is highly experienced at interim ministry. Indeed, Sue has served fifteen interims. Some involved parishes with more than one congregation; we will be her thirty-first congregation! One of the parishes was composed of two Lutheran congregations and one Methodist and she is excited about Spirit of Grace with its melding of Lutheran and Methodist traditions. Pr Sue worked as a registered nurse in Portland before beginning her ministry career in Minnesota. In more recent years, she has been in North and South Dakota and moved to Oregon in 2012. She loves the Pacific Northwest and fully embraces the challenge and joys of working in our small rural town of Hood River.
