Pastor Laura Hall-Schordje
Laura Hall-Schordje first heard God’s call to ministry as a girl who treasured her child’s book of Bible stories. During her teen years, Laura searched for a spiritual home and eventually found it in a Lutheran church, where she was invited to share her passion and gifts for ministry and music. As a result, she served as director of music and worship for several Chicago area ELCA congregations for 22 years. Eventually, Laura enrolled at Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago intending to refine her skills as a music minister.
God had other plans. After holding the chalice at the altar in worship class, the Holy Spirit made it clear her call was to word and sacrament. Laura answered that call joyfully and graduated five years later. Before being called to Living Christ, Laura served as a chaplain at a nursing home, where she led worship and Bible study as well as visiting and dancing with the residents. In her free time, Laura can be found watching classic films, throwing theme parties, and spoiling Sasha the cat and Penelope the dog. Laura has been happily married to Robert Schordje for 35 years, and they have one grown son, Noel. They reside in Chicago, Illinois.
