About Us

Rev. Jessica Scholten, Interim Pastor


The Rev. Jessica Scholten and her husband Tom grew up in Holland, MI, enjoying the beautiful sunsets on the other side of the Lake. She is a graduate of Hope College and Western Theological Seminary in Holland, with roots in the Reformed Church in America (a partner denomination of the Formula of Agreement with the ELCA, RCA, Presbyterians, and the United Church of Christ).


She officially moved her ordination to the Presbyterian Church (USA) a few years ago through John Knox Presbytery and has served in the PC(USA) since 2001, most recently as a interim pastor, head of staff, at Westminster Presbyterian in Madison as well as interim pastor at First Presbyterian in Lodi, Oakland-Cambridge Presbyterian in Cambridge, and First Pres in Oregon (WI). She has also served as a hospital chaplain, the associate minister at First Presbyterian Church in High Point, NC, and for several years as an “as needed” chaplain at St. Mary’s hospital. She and Tom love Madison, where they reside, and the surrounding areas, as well as traveling, biking, reading, rewatching every episode of the X-Files, and engaging in other various nerdy activities.
