Rev. Kristin Riegel
Rev. Kristin RiegelAssociate Pastor

Kristin hails from the frozen tundra known as Western New York. She traded one winter for another when she went to Macalester College in Saint Paul, Minnesota. At Macalester, Kristin taught English to immigrants and refugees, engaged in interfaith work, and discovered a love of travel, running, and all things intersectional. She received her Master of Divinity from McCormick Theological Seminary in Chicago and then served as a Lilly Resident Minister at the First Presbyterian Church in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

At Second, Kristin helps adults to explore spiritual questions, grow in their faith, and connect with God and one another through small groups, classes, and workshops. She also provides pastoral care, which frequently means meeting folks for coffee to talk about life’s ups and downs. “Second is a church that is truly seeking to be faithful to God in the world by engaging in loving, just and joyful work, both within and beyond the walls of the church,” Kristin said.

In her free time, you can find Kristin traveling, doing yoga, or reading a good book on her porch.
