Pastor Karen Jost is delighted to be part of St. John’s evolving ministry.  She has a passion for the Bible, for the joyful work of leading worship, and for bringing Christ’s presence to people when they need it most.  She grew up in Stevens Point, Wisconsin, attended Wisconsin state schools, and taught high school English in the Milwaukee area before following the Holy Spirit around a new bend, enrolling in the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago.  Pastor Karen earned her Master of Divinity degree in 2013 and was ordained in March of 2014. 

Pastor Karen is married to James Edgar, a Research & Development Manager by day, and Pastor Karen’s enthusiastic partner in ministry the rest of the time.  Together they have raised three daughters, now grown, who continue to enrich their lives in interesting ways.  Pastor Karen enjoys sailing and bicycling with Jim, listening to Beethoven’s symphonies, and taking long walks with their dog, Hector.
