Christ Church Calls New Vicar
A Very Special Announcement from our Bishop's Committee and Call Committee
MERRY CHRISTMAS! Our church has many reasons to celebrate this year, but especially the news that we will soon welcome our new Vicar. The Rev. Susan Mills is expected to join us in February 2021. Rev. Mills will be moving to Blaine from Indiana in the new year.
"I'm excited that we've found someone who is such a good fit for our congregation, and is so excited to move here. I feel confident in the future of Christ Church and the excellent match we've found to lead us into that future."

ABOUT THE REVEREND SUSAN MILLS
Throughout her lay and ordained ministry, the Rev. Susan Mills has enjoyed serving small parishes. She has been a part of small churches in the midwest, the east coast, the San Francisco Bay area, as well as in Austria and in the Diocese of Southeastern Mexico.
"I love small churches," she says. "Small churches are a microcosm of the whole church in action: loving, serving, caring, giving to make the Good News of God in Christ Jesus manifest."
Susan is a graduate of the Indiana University School of Music and has both bachelor's and master's degrees in music education. She taught elementary music for several years before discerning a vocation to the ordained ministry. She received the Master of Divinity degree from The General Theological Seminary. She has studied pastoral counseling at Louisville Presbyterian Seminary, has completed the Episcopal Church's course of training for musicians serving small parishes, as well as the Episcopal Church Latino Ministry Competency Course.
"What a true blessing to be able to share with our church family. A Merry Christmas to all."
