Fall 2019 Alumni Preaching Schedule
The Chapel of the Resurrection will welcome two alumni this fall as guest preachers. They are:
Sept. 15: Timothy Brown ’03 ’05
Tim Brown is a pastor, a writer, and an occasional beer brewer who received his BA in Theology at Valpo in 2003, and his Master’s in Education at Valpo in 2005. After almost ten years in the parish, Pr. Brown accepted a new call at the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago where he works in the development office helping to keep seminary education both academically rigorous and affordable for students.
He lives in Raleigh, North Carolina, with his wife Rhonda and two children, Findley and Alistair.
Oct. 20: Erica Gibson-Even ’00
Pastor Erica Gibson-Even is Pastor for Discipleship and Education at Christ Lutheran (ELCA) in Valparaiso, Ind., where she has served for 8 years. After a first call in Glenwood, Ill., she and her husband Adam lived near Geneva, Switzerland, where their two children were born. While she was there she picked up a love for joyful global worship, and an interest in the ways that “being a stranger” can serve as a spiritual discipline. She loves music, reading, cooking, and exploring the world with her kids. Since acquiring a backyard and “her own dirt,” she is having a lot of fun learning to garden by trial and error, and anxiously awaits each Spring!
Centered in Christ, the ministry of the Chapel of the Resurrection proclaims God’s love, serves
students, faculty, staff, and the wider community, and welcomes all.
