Day Hefner is the pastor of St. John’s Lutheran Church in Schuyler, NE. Pastor Day originally hails from Coleridge, NE, and most of her family still lives in the area. She is a graduate of Nebraska Wesleyan University and the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago (LSTC) and a former staff member at the Nebraska Synod office in Omaha. Also a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer, Pastor Day is fluent in Spanish (and English!) and specializes in bilingual ministry development. She has been active in ministry, education, and activism with immigrants and refugees in Nebraska, Chicago, New Mexico, and Texas. Pastor Day is particularly known for her boisterous laugh and for her total lack of control around craft supplies (especially yarn).
