Rev. Erin Counihan

Rev. Erin Counihan

Pastor

The Rev. Erin Counihan joined Oak Hill Presbyterian in ministry in July 2014. Although she doesn’t fully understand the cheese that guy Imo puts on the pizza here, she has already come to love the parks, museums, neighborhood restaurants, and of course, the people of her new hometown, St. Louis! Originally from Maryland, Erin went to college in Ohio and in Argentina, worked in Colorado, Baltimore, Mississippi and Chicago before heading to seminary in New Jersey. Erin likes to travel. She loves sports and free festivals, knitting and hiking, disaster recovery and elections, and always Cheetos with everything. She is passionate about serving both God and neighbor and couldn’t be more thrilled to join Oak Hill in the way they do just that, right here in Tower Grove, right here in St. Louis. Erin holds a BA in Politics and Government from Ohio Wesleyan University and an Masters in Divinity from Princeton Theological Seminary. She lives in the neighborhood with her brilliant and talented niece, Tegan (15), and their adorable dog Eddie.
