“I’m supposed to be here” New minister finds a homecoming at St. John’s by the Campus

From Iowa-

The Rev. Kim Turner Baker, the new pastor at St. John’s by the Campus Episcopal Church, was born in Des Moines and lived there for the first eight years of her life. But her ties to central Iowa go much further back to the early 1900s when her great uncle and grandfather were among the first blacks to graduate from Iowa State University.

So when she visited St. John’s earlier this year, Turner Baker said she felt as if it’s where she belonged.

Turner Baker, 62, began her work leading the congregation of about 320 parishioners in August, and was installed as its pastor during a ceremony last month.

To learn how more about how Turner Baker got here you have to look back.
