Rev. Mirjam Haas-Melchior is the Executive Presbyter of the Presbytery of Utah. Born, raised, and ordained in Germany (Evangelical Church in the Rhineland) she moved to the United States in 2008 with her husband, Daniel, and 4-month-old daughter, where they added two more children, a cat, a dog, guinea pigs, mice, and bunnies to the family bunch.
After serving congregations in Germany, Utah, and then Texas, she answered the call to serve the Presbytery of Utah and began her service here in January of 2021.
Mirjam shares with Captain Janeway – who is THE BEST captain Star Trek has ever seen - the love for coffee and exploring new places. Together with her family Mirjam explores the great Utah outdoors and travels around the world to meet new people as she believes that strangers are friends not yet met.
