New Bishop's Staff Members Named
February 27, 2014
The Diocese of Chicago is pleased to announce the appointment of two new members of the bishop's staff.
The Rev. Andrea Mysen has been called as associate for ministries. She will work collaboratively to support congregations, search committees and vestries through a broad range of activities including recruitment and leadership development. She will also support ministries programs, including Thrive, Fresh Start and Total Ministry.
Mysen joins the diocesan staff after more than eight years as rector of Trinity Episcopal in Highland Park, during which she served as co-chair of Congregations Commission and on Bishop and Trustees. She begins on March 10.
Karin Gutierrez joins us in a new role as administrative assistant for Operations. Gutierrez is a familiar face and voice to those who visit St. James Commons, having served as morning receptionist since August 2012. In her new role, her responsibilities will include supporting various functions in the operations and ministries departments. Karin began transitioning into her new role earlier this month.
