Wisconsin native is the new minister of First Congregational Church of Great Barrington

(Emily Thurlow) Rev. Tara L. Tetzlaff, is the new minister of the First Congregational Church in Great Barrington.

GREAT BARRINGTON — After a two-year search, a Wisconsin native has been selected as the new minister of First Congregational Church of Great Barrington.

The committee, composed of four men and four women, unanimously voted in favor of Rev. Tara L. Tetzlaff, pastor of the St. John United Church of Christ, based in Germantown, Wisconsin, as its new minister, said Chuck Hamilton, chair of lay leadership at the church.

The opening for a new pastor came after Rev. Charles “Pastor Van” VanAusdall retired from the role in 2017 after 35 years. Pastor Van’s departure allowed the congregation, which is part of the United Church of Christ, to reflect on its faith and mission, said Ray Murray III, moderator at the church.
