Calla Gilson serves as the Lead Coordinator for the Discipleship Initiative of the Northwestern Ohio Synod (ELCA), where she loves dreaming with folks across 22 counties about what God is up to in their communities. She holds a B.A. in International Affairs from George Washington University and is a YAGM Jerusalem and the West Bank alum. If she isn’t pulling espresso shots at the local coffee shop, you can find her digging in the dirt of the garden at home or alongside neighborhood families in the community garden – which both rely heavily on the abundant grace and care of gardener Jesus.
