Nick has been at St. Stephen's since September
and continues to find it a caring, grace-filled, and dedicated people, with
plenty of fair trade organic coffee! He loves a good laugh in worship, but
is serious about how God works through the liturgy to transform our lives.
With a commitment to environmental and justice issues, you may find him in
his garden or commuting on his bike. His wife, Acacia Latka, is sure to keep
him up to his ears in good books and movies from her library.

Edward came on board at St. Stephen’s in January,
2010. He is an ordained elder in the United
Methodist Church, recognized for 50 years of service
at the Wisconsin Annual Conference. Upon retiring,
he and his wife, Lorraine, moved to Madison. Their
interests center around art, antiques, travel,
sewing, entertaining and enjoying nature at their
cabin. They have two sons, both married, Kenton
living in Auckland, New Zealand, and Erik living in
Bellevue, WA; and one grandson in Auckland, New
Zealand. Edward is grateful for the opportunity to
be in ministry at St. Stephen’s, which he finds to
be most receptive and hospitable. Since both of our
denominations are now in full communion, St.
Stephen’s is not only “talking the talk” but
“walking the walk.”
