Meet Our Staff

The Rev. Dr. Edward Horstmann, Senior Pastor

“Imagination, not desperation!”

Ed is our Senior Pastor and loves to see the way that imagination and creativity can inspire people of faith to embrace challenges and dreams that bring hope to the world. He is the head of our remarkable church staff, and has served our congregation for over seven years. Round Hill Community Church called him away from Hartford, where he worked for fourteen years in an urban congregation, and he is thrilled to see our congregation growing as a vibrant, intergenerational church.

Reading and walking are the daily practices that most nourish his spiritual life, and he has been known to indulge an exuberant love for Fantasy Football. Ed is also an artist who works primarily with pastel. Ed and Susan, his wife, are avid fans of the Minnesota Vikings, and live in the Parsonage with their canine friends, Dot (Miniature Schnauzer) and Beau (Labrador).
