Theresa Cho grew up in Reno, Nevada amid the casino lights, Sierra Nevada mountains, and vast desert land. She balances her as a co-pastor with subverting her husband’s diet with baked goods, cheering on her son at soccer games, delighting in her daughter’s unique displays of being herself, and dutifully obeying her dog’s daily demands of being walked, petted, and adored.

She graduated from McCormick Theological Seminary in Chicago with awards in preaching and theology. Before coming to St. John’s Presbyterian Church in 2003, she completed a full-year chaplain residency program at UCSF Medical Center, where she continues to volunteer as a baby cuddler and member of the Professional Advisory Group for Spiritual Care Services.

She loves to teach and therefore has keynoted, preached, and led workshops at a variety of different conferences: youth, women leadership, peacemaking, and worship. She is currently working on her Doctor of Ministry degree at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, focusing on leading congregational and organizational change.

She loves to write and has published articles and written blogs in Christian CenturySojourners God’s Politics, Christians for Biblical Equality, ecclesio.comthe Presbyterian Leader, and other blog sites. You can follow her personal blog, Still Waters.

  1. Dear Reverend Theresa Cho,
    Thank you for coming and sharing your experience and wisdom on inter-generational worship with us at Fairfax Presbyterian Church, VA.

    With grateful heart, Thank you.

  2. Hi Theresa! We met when you presided over Synod School in Iowa a couple of years ago, and wondered if there was any chance you would be preaching at St. John’s on August 27th. We will be visiting our daughter who lives in San Mateo and would love to see/hear you again.
