Sarah Tupper (she/her) began attending the church in 2016, and joined the staff at North Baltimore Mennonite Church in the summer of 2019. At NBMC, Sarah has found a space that is both centered within the teachings of Jesus and affirming of herself as an individual within the LGBTQ+ community. North Baltimore Mennonite Church has allowed Sarah to feel more deeply connected to the body of Christ, grateful for the movements of the Holy Spirit within community and the communal journey together as we seek to live out our faith in Jesus.
Although Sarah graduated with a degree in spiritual formation and ministry, she taught for ten years (primarily as a public Montessori teacher) before joining the staff at NBMC. Sarah loves spending Friday evenings with the NBMC Youth Group, sitting with the spiritual questions of the youth. She loves the enthusiasm the NBMC kids bring to the study of Scripture during Sunday School, and appreciates the many moments of connection and vulnerability shared by our children and youth as they journey together towards God. For Sarah, it is truly life-giving to witness the children and youth of NBMC leaning into their faith, teaching all of us grownups how to more fully sit with mystery, love each other deeply, delight in the work of the Holy Spirit, and walk in the footsteps of Jesus.
Sarah lives with her wife, Ali, and two children in the neighborhood of Reservoir Hill. Sarah loves everything outdoors--from kayaking and swimming to biking and hiking to exploring nature with her two little ones.
