The Rev. Amanda Holm Rosengren – Deacon & Curate (Assistant Pastor)
Amanda Holm Rosengren serves as Deacon and Curate (Assistant Pastor) at Church of the Redeemer. After serving on staff at Redeemer as a Music Minister for two and a half years, she transitioned to a full time role in 2009, continuing to lead the music ministry as well as preaching, facilitating in areas such as congregational care and spiritual formation, and (in her words) “whatever else needs doing.”
Born and raised in southern California, Amanda first came to the Chicago area as a student at Wheaton College, graduating with a BA in English. In 2009 she graduated from Trinity International University, earning a Master of Divinity degree with a Pastoral Care focus. She and her husband, Erik, were married at Redeemer in 2010. The following year she was ordained as a Deacon in the Anglican Province of Rwanda, joining Canon Jay as clergy serving the church in worship and service. Amanda and Erik welcomed their first child, Ruth, in 2016, and a second daughter, Junia, in 2018.
In addition to her work with Redeemer, Amanda serves as the chair of the College of Deacons for the Diocese of the Rocky Mountains, helping to provide training and support for those serving as deacons as well as to promote the vitality of diaconal ministries across the diocese.
