Christine Rotella

Community Chaplain

Chaplain Christine has over two decades of chaplaincy experience that began as a volunteer with Operation Safety Net's adding spiritual care to the street and overnight shelter servant teams.  Several years later a fellowship community of people experiencing homelessness on Pittsburgh's North Side requested Chaplain Christine to pastor them as a faith community, and the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America affirmed that calling. In 2013, Chaplain Christine brought some leaders from that community to Allentown, where she continues to provide trauma-informed pastoral care, fostering an environment of grass-roots community organizing and development.
