Introducing Craig Tyrl – New Administrative Pastor!

We could not be more thrilled to announce our new Administrative Pastor: Craig Tyrl!

Answering the challenge to “be the change” he wished to see in the world and in our church, Craig stepped up to deepen his commitment to IUCC. As many of you know, Craig felt a call to ministry as a young man, and obtained a masters in theology. Believing a gay man could not serve, his career took a different path. Discovering IUCC was a coming home experience and in his over a decade here he has been a gift to our ministry. His heart continued to whisper, and when the opening for a new administrator and tech lead came up, Craig threw his name into the hat! Because of his theology degree, and his clear call to ministry, we are reinstating our Administrative Pastor position. This is not a called (or ordained) position, but we see Craig’s heart for ministry and recognize his inherent gifts, as we seek to offer him the space to grow pastorally while meeting the challenging demands of both administration and technology.

We hope you join in our excitement in welcoming Craig to his new role!

He will officially begin on January 1, 2023.
