Rev. Calahan is motivated to ministry by a strong conviction that God loves all people and that this truth has the power to change the way we perceive ourselves and how we live in the world. Tricia comes to us following ten years with Cornwall Presbyterian Church in Cornwall, New York, where she led her congregation to growth in ministry and in mission. This growth included a vibrant adult education program, a multi-church youth group, and a weekend food program for the Cornwall Central School District. Prior to service in Cornwall, Tricia was the Associate Pastor for Christian Formation at Davis Community Church in Davis, California. Tricia earned her Master of Divinity degree from Union Theological Seminary in New York City. Tricia is also an accomplished violinist, with Bachelor and Master of Music degrees from The Cleveland Institute of Music. In her spare time, she enjoys hiking in our beautiful surroundings and vegetarian cooking with her teenaged daughter.
