St. John's Lutheran Church
Pastor & Staff

Pastor Christine Emerson

Greetings in the name of Christ! My call at St. John’s first began as Associate Pastor in 2010.  New direction led to serving in a new call as Lead Pastor beginning October 8th, 2023. I continue to serve the people of St. John’s, a community of wonderful energy and love for the Gospel. I’m originally from the Pacific Northwest, born and raised in the Seattle area of Washington State. I attended Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary, graduating from there in 2005 and entering my first call in Strum, Wisconsin. I reside in Eau Claire with my husband, Jim, and my dog, Luna. When possible, I love to be out in God’s creation walking the dog. I also love reading, traveling, and going to baseball games. Having a professional background in music, I love to sing and during the concert season, both Jim and I sing with the Schola Cantorum of Eau Claire.
