Rev. Sarah Juist – Pastor
Pastor Sarah grew up in Fulton, Illinois—a small town, right on the Mississippi River. She holds a bachelor’s degree in International Relations from Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois, and after a small detour, received her Master of Divinity degree from Western Theological Seminary in Holland, Michigan.
Prior to joining HPC in February 2017, she served Westminster Presbyterian Church in Grand Rapids, MI, working with Christian Education, children’s ministry, and adult discipleship. Pastor Sarah is passionate about engaging and creative worship, encouraging the ministries of all people of all ages and abilities in the church, and organizational leadership.
In addition to her work at HPC, Pastor Sarah also serves on the Presbytery of Scioto Valley’s Care of Church Professionals Commission and the United Way of Licking County’s Community Impact Division. With the rest of her time, she loves to crochet, take in good books, bake homemade bread, and go exploring with her very spoiled beagle mix, Hope.
