Rev. Molly Carlson, Designated Term Conference Minister
August 15, 2017
The Rev. Molly Carlson began her ministry in the Central Pacific Conference as our new Designated Term Conference Minister on August 15th. Molly brings great energy and passion to her ministerial work. We are excited about her vision to build connections across the conference and to help us discern how to be conference together in these next few years.
Molly brings over 15 years of ministerial experience including leading two new church starts, pastoring in both interim and settled settings, and work at the regional and national level of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) supporting new emerging congregations and congregations discerning the end of their ministry. Molly is ordained in the Disciples and has full ministerial partnership standing in the UCC. Her most recent leadership is as senior minister of the United Church of Christ (Congregational) in Yankton, SD.
Molly is married to Rev. Michael Carlson, a minister and musician. They have two sons, Simon (16) and Adam (13). Molly is an avid knitter and enjoys camping with her family, spending time at the beach, and reading good books.
