WELCOME REV. KAREN CRAWFORD!
We’re excited to welcome The Reverend Karen E. Crawford as our new pastor beginning January 15, 2019.
Rev. Karen Crawford grew up in a small, farming community in Damascus, MD. She attended a Lutheran Church as a child, and, as a young adult in college at Towson State University she worshiped with Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship. She earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in education and went on to work as a classroom teacher and reading specialist in Pennsylvania. During her summers, she worked as a freelance writer for the York Dispatch, reporting on borough and township news, school board meetings, and many local feature stories.
Karen was offered a full-time job as staff religion writer for the York Daily Record/Sunday News in 2000, and, seeing God’s hand in it, left teaching and accepted the position to serve God and the Church by being the voice for the faithful in her community. Her job required her to worship and meet new people in a different church every Sunday and to attend a synagogue, temple, and a mosque after the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.
Reflecting on this time, she sees this as the Lord preparing her for community and parish ministry and for revealing to her that every person, as a child of God, has a unique and important story to tell. And every congregation, large or small or in-between, urban, suburban or rural, is precious to the Lord and belongs to Him.
Karen married The Reverend Dr. Jim Crawford, a Presbyterian pastor, in 2005. Together they discerned the Lord calling her to attend seminary, work summers as a chaplain at Codorus State Park in Hanover, PA, and then, after graduating from Princeton Theological Seminary in 2010, pursue a call to parish ministry in the Presbyterian Church. Karen has served as solo pastor of a congregation in rural, Southwestern Minnesota and head of staff for a church on tropical, Merritt Island, FL. She is honored and happy to accept the call to serve, once again, in rural ministry in Coshocton, OH. She and Jim, in their blended family, have 5 grown children, 2 grandchildren, a cat named Melvyn and a dog named Mabel. She enjoys spending time with her family and friends, playing piano, singing, crocheting shawls and blankets, knitting hats, writing, reading non-fiction, taking walks, eating out, baking cookies, taking pho- tos, going to museums and movies, buying shoes, and watching British mysteries.

Are you new here?
Joining a church can mean many things to many people. Some seek out God and community when they feel they have lost their way, or are seeking a deeper purpose, or are looking for a way to connect to their family and cultural identity. But it is our believe that the Church, at its core, is about finding love and beauty through God and God’s work.
At Presbyterian Church, we inspire individuals of all ages and backgrounds to bring the Lord Almighty into their lives at every moment - moments of joy, moments of despair, and even those moments in between. We are committed to the teachings of Jesus Christ, and are here to spread His message with loving patience and kindness.
