Lisa D. Kenkeremath served as MPC’s Interim Pastor from 2017 through 2020, and has returned to lead the congregation through another transitional period as a new pastor is sought. Prior to her ministry with MPC, Rev. Kenkeremath served several churches in the National Capital area. She was a National Capital Presbytery commissioner to the 224 th General Assembly (2020) of the PCUSA and is currently serving on the Presbyteries’ Cooperative Committee for Exams, the GA committee that develops and oversees ordination exams for PCUSA ministry candidates. She holds D.Min. and M.Div. degrees from Pittsburgh Theological Seminary and Virginia Theological Seminary, respectively, and has studied in Jerusalem and Aberdeen, Scotland.

Though surprised to be back at MPC after a brief “retirement” of about a year and a half, Lisa is happy to reconnect with MPC members and staff as we minister together in our new post-pandemic world.

Lisa lives in Falls Church with her husband, Deepak, and their gray tabby Moxie. The couple (not the cat) are looking forward to the birth of their first grandchild in July.
