Welcome Lauren Whitfield

Join Us in Welcoming Our Summer Intern from Princeton Theological Seminary


Lauren Whitfield







      Lauren Whitfield is a Washington, DC native who now calls Philadelphia home. She has spent the last decade working for mission organizations. A student of cultures, Lauren has studied and worked in Panama, various parts of Mexico, Bolivia, Thailand, Peru, Argentina, and Brazil. Lauren graduated with honors from Eastern University with a dual degree in Missions and Anthropology.

      Before seminary she served for seven years in full-time ministry as an intercessory missionary with the International House of Prayer (IHOP). Lauren is currently in her last year as a Master of Divinity student at Princeton Theological Seminary and is entering her first year as a Master of Social Work student at Rutgers University.

      Having been drawn to Methodism over the last few years, Lauren recently joined the African Methodist Episcopal Church and is currently pursuing ordination in the AME Church. When not working or in school you can find Lauren outdoors, trying a new recipe, or enjoying a good audio book—usually comedy or a good memoir. She is happily married to her husband, Omar, who is a safety engineer.

     Lauren will work primarily with Pastor Luky and Casa del Pueblo, but will also shadow and assist Pastor Bill and Pastor Nancy. She will help with Pastoral Ministry, make home visits, and assist Brad Beck with Lehman's Youth Ministry. She will have the opportunity to preach at some Worship Services and serve the consecrated communion elements, as well. Lauren is excited to work with both Lehman and Casa Del Pueblo to partner with what God is doing in the Greater Hatboro area and beyond! She looks forward to being with you!
