Lynn SOur Pastor

The Reverend Lynn Bozich Shetzer has had a varied ministry since she was ordained in August 1979. She is a graduate of The College of Wooster and Duke Divinity School in Durham, N.C. Lynn has spent most of her ministry in Muskingum Valley Presbytery, but she has also served congregations in Des Moines, Iowa, and she spent two years in Jerusalem as a PCUSA mission worker. Because of family responsibilities, Lynn spent the years while her children were growing up serving congregations in part-time capacities. Most often these were Interim positions including 2003 to 2005 when she served as Reedurban’s Interim Pastor.

 

Lynn loves the Church and parish ministry in particular. As she has listened for God’s voice and tried to respond faithfully to God’s call, she has grown through the challenges of ministry and has been blessed by the wonderful people with whom she has served. “Serving with the Reedurban congregation was a time of significant spiritual growth for me, and I am so grateful for it,” she said. Accepting the opportunity to serve at Reedurban again, Lynn feels called to bring the breadth of her experience to the tasks the church faces. She also feels a great sense of anticipation to discover how God is calling us into the future as disciples of Jesus.

 

Lynn is married to Tim Shetzer who serves as CEO of the YMCA of Central Stark County. They live just southeast of Greentown and have two grown children. Daughter, Lane, was born in Jerusalem. She and her husband Nathan Baldwin live in Shaker Heights where Lane has a photography business. Her son, Barry, lives and works in downtown Cleveland with J.P. Morgan Chase bank. For those who remember him as a Hoover basketball player, Barry continues his athletic interest in local recreation leagues.
