Clergy, Staff, & Lay Leadership

Chana_2Rector: The Rev. Chana Winger Tetzlaff

The Rev. Chana Tetzlaff began her service as Minister in Charge at Emmanuel in August 2013, and was ordained to the priesthood in February 2014. Born and raised in California, Chana grew up in the church and was involved in ministry from a young age. She has over a decade of leadership experience in a variety of positions at the parish, Diocesan, and Provincial levels. Chana began formal discernment for the priesthood in 2006 when she was running an inner-city youth group and training as a Stephen Minister, ministries through which she felt a distinct call to work with those who are spiritually hungry and searching to provide authentic space in which to connect with God’s healing love. Her greatest joys in ministry are simply to walk alongside people as they seek and follow Christ, to listen and discern with them as they strive to answer questions about God, and to form healthy communities that minister to and encourage one another through relationship with God.  Chana is a cum laude graduate of Virginia Theological Seminary and holds a Bachelor’s degree in International Relations from the University of California at Davis. Prior to seminary, Chana worked as a marketer for a civil engineering firm. In her spare time, she can be found at a coffee house, cooking or hosting a “too-many-cooks-in-the-kitchen” dinner party, or exploring local attractions and foodie hangouts in the Kentucky countryside. Chana lives in Winchester with her husband, TJ, and their pets, Jacob the hedgehog and Molly the dog.
