Rhonda Banasiak

Lay Pastor

Rhonda Banasiak's first career was as a Medical Technologist. Her last job was working for the Tennessee Department of Health as a Microbiologist. After becoming a stay-at-home mom, Rhonda felt that she was being called to switch gears and become a lay pastor. She finished the Christian Leadership Program at the University of Dubuque Theological Seminary in the Fall of 2014. Rhonda has been working for First Presbyterian Church since July 2020. Rhonda Banasiak preaches and leads worship at least once a month and teaches the Wednesday morning Bible study classes that correspond with those services. She also helps with pastoral care needs. Rhonda is also active with the Congregational Care and Worship committees and with our Presbyterian Women group.
