Having started in May 2014, Pastor Elaina Salmon is excited to companion the people of Bethany Lutheran Church on the journey of faith. She has been called here to foster renewal and growth in faith, worship, outreach and stewardship.
Pastor Elaina has served in two other congregations--Lutheran Church of the Cross, Muncie,IN (5+years of ministry) and Ashburn Lutheran Church, Chicago (3 month interim position). She loves being a pastor! It brings together her love of God and love of people.
Her husband and two children bring laughter, love, messes and craziness to her life! For fun, Pastor Elaina enjoys reading, playing frisbee, dancing, trying new recipes, watching shows like Downton Abbey and Call the Midwife. and squeezing in time for a bit of exercise.
