Pastor Martha Maier
Greetings in Christ’s name!
I’m Pastor Martha Maier and I have served as associate pastor at St. Andrew Lutheran Church since May, 2005. My areas of focus are faith formation and nurture along with spirituality. I love working with people of all ages and am particularly interested in helping families nurture the faith lives of their children.
Before coming to St. Andrew, I ministered at Grace Lutheran Church in Corvallis for 12 years. I’m a 1989 graduate of Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary. In 2004, I received a certificate in spiritual direction from Shalom Prayer Center in Mt. Angel. I have a long-standing interest in the catechumenate, which is a process of faith formation for adults who desire to begin or renew a relationship with Christ and the Church. In 2011 I was blessed with a wonderful sabbatical that you can read about here.
I’m married and have a daughter who works at the Gates Foundation in Seattle and a son who is in a transition program for young adults with disabilities. I have an interest in healthy and local eating and love to tend my garden in my spare time.
Thank you for visiting our web page and I look forward to meeting you in person!
