New pastor at Hampton Park to preach first sermon there

The Rev. Sarah Richey will preach her first service as pastor of Hampton Park Christian Church at tomorrow s 10:30 a.m. service.

Ms. Richey previously served as pastor for eight years at Kenwood Christian Church in Cincinnati.

She said she felt a call to ministry at age 5, but as a young adult was discouraged from pursuing it by her male pastor, who said women did not belong in ordained ministry.

After working for years as a librarian, Ms. Richey decided to follow her calling and enroll at Duke Divinity School, earning a master of divinity degree in 1999.

A formal installation service will be held after the new year at Hampton Park Christian Church, 4234 Monroe St.
