Rev. Dr. Rachel Metheny, Pastor
Rachel Metheny was born in Indianapolis and lived most of her life there, except for two years in San Francisco/Bay area and one year in Guatemala. She served as pastor of Broadway in Indianapolis for 18 years before her appointment to Congress Street on July 1, 2017. She has a daughter, Grace, who is a college student at Indiana University, and two dachshunds, Zoey and Shortie. She has a PhD in ethics from Graduate Theological Union and has taught at Christian Theological Seminary (where Congress Street’s previous pastor, Clarinda Crawford was a student in her ethics course). She loves reading, IU basketball (I know, I know), and walking. With her daughter, she loves to travel (especially to Kauai, Hawaii). They have been able to travel all around the world due to receiving two Lily Endowment Clergy Renewal Grants. She loves to make homemade pizza (her only specialty). She is looking forward to eating at all the good local restaurants.
