Rev. Alyssa Kaplan

Pastor Alyssa is overjoyed to join the saints in Colgate as the Pastor and Mission Developer at St Peter. Pastor Alyssa grew up in the Tidewater region of Virginia and loves nothing more than being near and in the water! Pr Alyssa will be helping the existing community at St Peter transition into a season of Mission Development, meaning that together we'll be exploring new and creative ways to share the love of Jesus with our community. Pr Alyssa has been blessed to call lots of amazing places home including Buenos Aires, Philadelphia, Tlaxco (Mexico), New York City, Baltimore and most recently Blacksburg, VA. She served as vicar (pastoral intern) at Breath of God Lutheran Church in Highlandtown and is thrilled to be back in Baltimore, a corner of the world that captured her heart and imagination as a vicar! Pr Alyssa loves to cook, hike, and hang out with her dog, Theo!
