About The Pastor

Rev. Miriam E. Sedzro

Born in Dzodze, Ghana, Rev. Miriam Sedzro is the ninth of twelve children. Her upbringing deeply influenced by the teachings of the First Century Gospel Church. Despite her father’s passing before her move to the United States, her community’s unwavering support propelled her to pursue higher education at Stony Brook University. There, she earned degrees in Economics and Industrial Management.

After several decades in the finance and insurance industries, Rev. Sedzro felt a divine calling to ministry. Ordained in 2009, she has since served as a Lutheran pastor at Resurrection Lutheran Church in Roxbury, where she leads with humility and dedication. Her journey has taken her across 37 states in the USA and to various countries, but her greatest blessings remain her family and her commitment to building God’s Kingdom.

Our mission, rooted in the anchor of Jesus, is to love God, one another, and our neighbors, embodying the motto “Many Hearts, One Lord” and testifying to a holy commonwealth that transcends boundaries.
