Bolz is founding pastor of House for All Sinners and Saints congregation in Denver,
Colorado. Heavily tattooed and often profane, this former standup comic turned pastor takes an unusual approach to church. She is part of what scholar and writer, Diana Butler Bass, calls the “new Reformation.”

A recovering addict, Bolz-Weber has created a congregation that is open to those  struggling with addiction, as well as persons who are uncomfortable in traditional   churches. Bolz-Weber will speak about her own faith journey and her vision for the changing church.

NADIA BOLZ-WEBER is the author of two New York Times bestselling memoirs: Pastrix; The Cranky, Beautiful Faith of a Sinner & Saint (2013) and Accidental Saints; Finding God in All the Wrong People (2015). She is an ordained Lutheran pastor (ELCA) and still works as the founding pastor of House for All Sinners and Saints in Denver, Colorado. Nadia travels domestically and internationally as a speaker and has been featured on NPR’s Morning Edition, On Being with Krista Tippett, Fresh Air, CNN and in the Washington Post, Bitch magazine, The Daily Beast, More magazine and The Atlantic. International media coverage includes BBC World Service and The Guardian and magazine features in Germany, Poland, and Switzerland. Nadia lives in Denver with her family and her Great Dane, Zacchaeus.

 

“[Bolz-Weber] is a tatted-up, foul-mouthed champion to people sick of being belittled as not Christian enough for the right or too Jesus-y for the left.”  —The Washington Post

“The amazing thing about Nadia Bolz-Weber is that she manages to take her Christianity into corners of life where the church can be pretty uncomfortable going.”  — The Daily Beast
