Rev. Dr. Amber Karkosky-Litten


Pastor Amber’s life journey has helped her realize that not fitting the institutional mold can be a blessed gift. She felt called as a young child to serve others and the church, and began her professional ministry in 2000. Her ministry brings a passionate yet contagious joy and authenticity by helping others to discover God’s unconditional love and true belonging on a deep, personal level.


She has served several congregations and communities throughout Indiana and Illinois. Pastor Amber recently earned her Doctor of Ministry from Christian Theological Seminary where she received her Master of Divinity Degree. She holds her Bachelor's in Management & Communication from Concordia University.


“My very favorite gift is spending time with people I love.” She and her husband, Chad, make an exceptional team raising three amazing children: Myranda, McKale, and Maddox, aka Maddy.
