LIA SCHOLL – Pastor
Pastor Lia Scholl values relationships and meeting people “where they’re at.” Her most recent pastorate was serving at Gateway Community Church in Bali, Indonesia. Prior to that, she was the pastor of the Richmond Mennonite Fellowship in Richmond, Virginia. She has worked in the trenches of ministry: with sex workers, drug users, and women exiting prison, and learned that the real value of people is not in their actions, but in their hearts. She is the author of I Heart Sex Workers. Lia is originally from Alabama and loves running and dark chocolate.
