Rev. Dr. Miriam Lawrence Leupold

Glenn and Miriam Lawrence Leupold are Co-Pastors at First Presbyterian Church. Each have individual gifts which lend themselves to certain areas of ministry and complement one another as well. They work 2/3 time each so make up 1 1/3 pastor!

As a married couple, this is the third church in which they have served together. There were Associate Pastors at First Presbyterian Church of Jamestown, New York, and at Westminster Presbyterian Church of Dayton, Ohio.

They graduated together from Princeton Theological Seminary.

Miriam grew up in Winchester, Virginia, attended the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia, and received her Doctor of Ministry degree in Christian Spirituality from Columbia Theological Seminary, Decatur, Georgia.

Glenn was born in Ohio but grew up in Minnesota where he attended the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, Minnesota. His Doctor of Ministry degree is in Preaching and was awarded by McCormick Theological Seminary in Chicago, Illinois.

They enjoy biking, hiking and birdwatching, as well as movie watching, gardening and reading. They are the parents of two adult daughters who are involved in the arts – metalsmithing/jewelry making and theatre.
