"Provided that you continue in the faith, stable and steadfast, not shifting from the hope of the gospel which you heard, which has been preached to every creature under heaven, and of which, I, Paul, became a minister."
Manuela's preparation for service as Minister of Word and Sacrament includes extensive experience both on the mission field and at home. She is multilingual which includes—as she herself expresses it—"speaking several languages, but also conveying the faith in many different ways." Manuela Kauer is a woman of deep personal faith and wisdom. She has been a servant leader who has discerned God's call for her life in a ministry marked by personal sacrifice and faithful, joyful obedience to her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. She is passionate and committed to serving God's precious children throughout the world.
Manuela, her husband, Juan, and daughters, Laura and Camila, served during 15 years as missionaries in Buenos Aires, Argentina. There she carried multiple tasks as the Executive Director of a small Christian organization, then as the Coordinator of Community Development in the same organization, the Coordinator of PCUSA Young Adult Volunteers in Argentina and Uruguay, and finally held two pastoral positions in local churches in Buenos Aires. She also served as the Interim Pastor of United Presbyterian Church in Pottsville, PA before coming to First Presbyterian Church in Bethlehem, PA.
The Kauers continue to be in contact with mission partners they worked with and are passionate to bring the good news in words and deed wherever they are.
