Gloria Dei Lutheran Church
"Gathered in Christ, we are called to bring light to our community."
We welcome everyone into all aspects of congregational life and leadership: all gender and sexual expressions and identities, all ages, all races and ethnicities, all economic and marital situations, all physical and mental abilities. We come as we are.
Emily Ronsberg (she/her) is fabulously excited to be Gloria Dei’s 11th pastoral intern! Originally from Oakdale, MN, she graduated from Concordia College in Moorhead, MN with a bachelor’s degree in biology and chemistry. Before starting seminary, she spent a year in Matimba, Rwanda
with the ELCA’s Young Adults in Global Mission (YAGM) program. Emily has never been to Oregon before and is looking forward to learning about and living in the area of Coos Bay alongside the Gloria Dei community. She loves that church is a place people can be reminded of God’s unconditional love for them and live in response to that love in service to the world. In her free time Emily can be found hiking, zooming with her partner, Hannah (also a Wartburg seminary student), reading memoirs and poetry, and playing D&D.
