CHAPLAIN WEST

Rev. Elly McHan

Pastor Elly McHan returned home to family in Alberta in 2019 after having served on three continents. Her formation in Salzburg, Austria; Oslo, Norway; Jerusalem, Palestine; and Moorhead, Minnesota, USA transformed her experience of community, worship and music. In her curation of worship and music she strives to dwell in liturgy as she dances with context. Elly received her Master of Divinity from Wartburg Theological Seminary in Dubuque, Iowa, studied Viola at Universitët Mozarteum in Salzburg, Austria, and earned a Bachelor of Music in Violin and Viola Performance at the University of Alberta. She currently serves as Pastor at St. Peter’s Evangelical Lutheran Church, Millet, AB and as a Teaching Artist with the YONA-Sistema Educational Program of the Winspear Centre for Fine Arts. In the midst of family leave and Covid-19 Elly also began training as a Spiritual Director and will complete her training in October 2022. Elly is Mumma to Benjamin Paul, a precocious toddler who reminds her daily of the importance of curiosity, confidence, wonder, and unabashed joy—alongside all of the other emotions.   (https://practicinglifeembodyingfaith.wordpress.com/)
