The Transitional Minister Nominating Committee of Piedmont Community Church has recommended, and the Board of Trustees has approved, the hiring of Rev. Dr. Steve Schibsted. Dr. Schibsted will assume duties as Transitional Minister on January 1, 2021.
Dr. Schibsted recently served a three-year term as Transitional Minister at First Presbyterian Church of Berkeley, which ended this month. He and his wife, Leslie, have a home in Upper Rockridge, less than three miles from Piedmont Church. They have two adult children – a daughter residing in the Bay Area and a son currently living in Idaho.
Dr. Schibsted is an ordained Presbyterian Minister, receiving his Master of Divinity from Princeton Theological Seminary in 1991, and his Doctor of Ministry from Fuller Theological Seminary in 2001. He received Interim Pastor Training in 2017.
Dr. Schibsted has been a Senior Minister for more than 20 years, leading churches in three different locations. He has led successful improvement programs at his last three churches – increasing attendance and strengthening finances.
Dr. Schibsted will be formally introduced to the congregation on Sunday, October 4 and will preach his first sermon at Piedmont Church Sunday, January 3, 2021.
