Associate Pastor

Rev. Kerstin Hedlund
(708) 848-4741


As Pastor Kathy begins a dual role at the Metropolitan Chicago Synod office and at Good Shepherd, Rev. Kerstin Hedlund is excited to serve with Good Shepherd in new ways.  She will serve as a contracted part-time Associate; this will help free Pastor Kathy to more fully serve both Good Shepherd and the larger church of which we are a part.  

Pastor Kerstin is currently rostered with the Greater Milwaukee Synod. She currently serves as an Army Reserve chaplain as well as a full-time student at the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago in the PhD program.  She has been on leave from call for academics since 2015 and is grateful for an opportunity to re-engage with parish ministry in a small, but deeply fulfilling way.

Her identified areas of service at Good Shepherd are Evangelism and Young Adults. Pastor Kerstin will preach once per month and is currently scheduled for February 2nd and March 1st. The current contract term is February 1 to June 30.
