Vicar Tara Shilts

Tara informal.jpg


Tara Shilts and her family joined First Lutheran in spring 2016 soon after returning to the area to serve Gundersen Medical Center as a chaplain educator in training. She works with their clinical pastoral education (CPE) and has already been consecrated as a diaconal minister in the ELCA. That means she is on the clergy roster and has graduated from seminary (at LSTC) and served in the capacity of Word and Service — ordained pastors serve the ministry of Word and Sacrament. Tara intends to complete her journey toward ordination this year by participating in an internship at First, which means she will sit in on many meetings, help lead worship on Sundays and reflect on how God is at work through parish ministry.
