Pastor runs for Congress

Angela Zimmann, an ELCA pastor, in November announced her bid for U.S. Congress. Zimmann, 38, launched her candidacy from her home in Holland, Ohio, surrounded by supporters who brought nonperishable food for a pantry in keeping with her philosophy of "servant leadership."

Zimmann teaches in the General Studies Writing program at Bowling Green [Ohio] State University.

She's a graduate of the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg (Pa.) and is president of the Northwest Region of the Ohio School Boards Association. She is challenging Bob Latta in the 5th Congressional District of Ohio.
