Rev. Craig Saltzer
I am honored and excited to serve as your interim pastor until such time as the Holy Spirit reveals to you the person whom he has already chosen to minister with you in the years to come. I grew up in York, Pennsylvania, and after earning my bachelor’s degree at Cornell University, I taught high school English at my alma mater for seven years. Then the Holy Spirit “nudged” me toward what was then Gettysburg Seminary. I have been serving in this synod ever since my graduation from Gettysburg in 1984.
