Laura Kraybill

Co-Pastor

I joined the Reba Place Church community as Co-Pastor in 2022. I have an MDiv from Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary and am ordained in the Illinois Conference of Mennonite Church USA. Before coming to Reba I worked in campus ministry, hospital chaplaincy, and theater education (MA in Theater Education, Emerson College). I grew up in London, England as a missionary and pastor’s kid and have lived in many places. My passions include building cross-cultural relationships, youth and young adult ministry, the arts in worship, and nurturing vibrant, inclusive faith communities. For fun I like to sing, dance, cook, read, hike and make cards.

Office Manager

I have been a part of the Reba Place Church community since 2008 and was drawn to the neighborhood by the vibrant life and expression of the church. Originally from Minnesota, I now live in the area with my husband and three kids, and am excited to be a part of the community-building efforts at Reba to create a thriving and life-giving experience.
