The Madison Christian Community is a unique community rooted in a groundbreaking partnership between two very different congregations. We do almost everything together including education for all ages, service in the wider community, care of our land and our environmental stewardship efforts. We even worship together regularly throughout the year. Guests will encounter a vibrant community of faith that values relationships and community engagement and that actively lives out its faith every day of the week. Explore our website to learn more about our two individual congregations and about our partnership efforts and visit us on Sunday morning.

Pastor Sonja Ingebritsen and Pastor Nick UtphallIntroducing Our New Pastors: Pastor Sonja Ingebritsen and Pastor Nick Utphall

We rejoice in welcoming Pastor Sonja Ingebritsen and Pastor Nick Utphall as the new pastoral team of the Madison Christian Community!

Pr. Nick was called to Advent in November. He was recommended by the Advent Call Committee, approved by the Advent Council and MCC Leadership Team, and confirmed by unanimous vote at an Advent congregational meeting.

Pr. Sonja was called to Community of Hope in December. She was recommended by the Community of Hope Search Committee, approved by the Hope Steering Committee and the MCC Leadership Team, and confirmed by unanimous vote by Community of Hope.
Pr. Nick has been the Associate Pastor of St. Stephen’s Lutheran Church in Monona, WI for the past eleven years. At St. Stephens he developed innovative children’s ministries and confirmation programs and found creative ways to involve children and youth in worship. He brings a strong background in social justice, a passion for the environment, and strengths in preaching and pastoral care took out the word skills. He is active with the WI Council of Churches and WI Interfaith Power and Light. Pastor Nick bikes to work, plays the banjo and a variety of instruments, and has already volunteered to lead the Senior High trip to the Boundary Waters next summer. Nick is a graduate of UW-Eau Claire and Luther Seminary in St. Paul.

For the past six years, Pr. Sonja has served the Church of the Good Shepherd UCC, Carbondale, IL, as Senior Pastor. She has been very active in the community's social justice issues and brings a wealth of work experience in human services with emphasis on the elderly. She nurtures a deep spirituality of her own and cherishes the gift of companioning others on their spiritual journeys. Her father being an ELCA pastor, she grew up Lutheran and brings impeccable Lutheran credentials to the MCC. In more recent years Sonja has found her home and her pastoral calling within the UCC tradition. She is a published author and writes fiction and poetry. Sonja is a graduate of Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, WA and the Pacific School of Religion in Berkeley, CA.

Both pastors will serve the entire MCC community and will begin their ministries with us on January 20, 2016. As a team, their creativity and collaborative spirits will be blessings to the MCC.

We welcome Pr. Nick and Pr. Sonja to join us on the Road Ahead!
