Princeton Seminary graduate Emily Chudy remembers her deep disappointment. “I’d expected a call,” she says. Rejected — she’d been one of two finalists for her first ministerial job — she sat in her dorm praying, “God, here is your servant; your will be done.” Chudy, a candidate for ministry in the Presbytery of Donegal who holds an M.Div. and a master's degree in youth ministry, had no job. Erin Cox-Holmes, executive presbyter at Donegal since 2010, had been praying too — about Central Presbyterian Church in Downingtown, Pennsylvania.  The 900-member congregation was in the midst of a “tangled split.” After failing to get the required 75 percent super majority vote to leave the denomination, the pastors, most of the church staff and session, and around 250 members had left to form an Evangelical Presbyterian Church congregation down the street. The 175 worshipers left wanted to remain in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). “It was counterintuitive, but I kept looking at the church and Emily together,” says Cox-Holmes. “Most times, you would put an experienced interim pastor there. But I was seeing God at work — God’s call.” Cox-Holmes reached out to Chudy, who was in a car full of bridesmaids when the phone rang. “I remember Erin asking if I could talk about ‘a possible summer preaching opportunity.’ To which I replied, ‘In this moment … not exactly.’”  Once they did talk, things moved rather quickly. Chudy started out as temporary pulpit supply. “In those early worship times together, we claimed our identity of belonging to a God who was bigger than what they had been hearing about,” says Chudy. “It was powerful for them to stand up for the church they believed in, to know this is where they belonged.” By September 2012, the congregation had stabilized. It was becoming an intergenerational family of kids, youth, parents and grandparents.
