PUNXSUTAWNEY — There are a lot of part-time jobs you could apply for if you're looking to make some extra cash, but a part-time job as a pastor is more complicated than most.

Tom Krishart is the new pastor at the Albion Heights United Methodist Church, as of March 1.

"I'm considered part-time with a minimum salary, and I'm a full-time
rural mail carrier," Krishart said, adding that the pastor he's replacing is his wife, Dawn Krishart, who is now pastoring at the Sykesville Grace United Methodist Church, the Big Run United Methodist Church and is the youth pastor at the First United Methodist Church in Punxsutawney.
