Revd Dr Silke Radosh-Hinder, Deputy Superintendent
Dr Silke Radosh-Hinder came to the district of Berlin-Stadmitte as a trainee pastor in Kreuzberg in 1998. Following her ordination, she continued there as a pastor before her appointment as district minister for children and youth. As Deputy Superintendent, the focus of her work continues to be the church’s work with young people, continuing to expand and reform it with a special eye toward interfaith dialogue among Berlin’s Christian, Jewish, and Muslim communities.
