The Rev. Dr. Lillian Daniel, Senior Pastor
The Rev. Dr. Lillian Daniel is Senior Pastor at 1st Congregational Church in Dubuque, Iowa - a vibrant welcoming congregation with a heart for the city.
A teacher and a writer, Lillian is the author of four books, most recently Tired of Apologizing for a Church I Don't Belong To and When "Spiritual But Not Religious" Is Not Enough.
She is a graduate of Bryn Mawr College, Yale Divinity School and Hartford Seminary. From St John’s Theological College in New Zealand to Chicago Theological Seminary, she has taught aspiring clergy how to preach, but please don’t hold that against her. She can’t be held responsible for everyone who falls asleep in church.
Pastor Lillian served three churches before coming to Iowa, two in Connecticut and most recently a 1,400 member church in the western suburbs of Chicago.
She likes it here better.
