Rev. Linda Gastreich
Pastor Linda's ministry at Grace UMC began in July, 2022. She is deeply committed to letting people know they are are able to claim God's inclusive and unlimited grace and love. She is guided by Jesus' many acts of compassion, welcome, justice and restoration.
Pastor Linda and her husband, Kent, enjoy cycling and spending time outdoors. Their household includes two cats and two big dogs. They find hope in all places so they believe the dogs will one day learn to "sit" and "stay."
