Introducing Pastor Aimee

Pastor Aimee Appell has a Masters in Divinity from Luther Seminary in Saint Paul, Minnesota.  She has a big heart and is passionate about finding creative ways to share the gospel and to live the gospel in her daily life.  (You can check out some of her sermons here.) Her preaching is also informed by her rich history of work and travel.  She has been employed as a bus driver and travel guide in Alaska, a CDL trainer in Utah, an office worker at a University in Seattle, and yes, she has also done her time scooping ice cream in an ice-creamery.

When she isn’t focusing on her call at Peace Lutheran Church, she can be found spending time with family, knitting, reading or exercising at the YMCA. She is the mother to three wonderful children: Elinor (2) , Holden (9), and Grace (14). She has been married for nearly 17 years to her husband, Nelson.

She is the Chairperson of Neighbor’s United: Undoing Racism, which meets monthly on the first Saturday of the Month at Peace Lutheran Church. She has moderated a discussion on Interrupting Racism at East Community College, attended the 2009 and 2015 Parliament of World Religions, and is an outspoken proponent of love and inclusion. She enjoys traveling and experiencing different cultures; she plans to spend six weeks in South Africa next summer as part of a four-month sabbatical.

  1. Dear Pastor Appell,
    Thank you for your very thoughtful reflections for God Pause. I found them very helpful in my daily devotions last week. Your prayers at the end of the reflection were centering for me.
