A Salem Tradition

Salem UCC has a history of welcoming student pastors.The congregation and ministers have provided valuable experience and guidance to individuals who aspire to the clergy. Many lifelong friendships have been created through this tradition of shepherding student pastors through the challenges of caring for and preaching to a congregation.


Salem's most recent student minister was Jessica Hainley.  Jess graduated from Lancaster Theological Seminary in May of 2018.
