Our Pastors: Those who serve today

Pastor John Thompson, S.T.S. is our current pastor. Pastor John is a powerful preacher. He has served as our pastor since 2021. He leads our Divine Liturgy Service every Sunday at 10AM. He also teaches Bible Studies and Cathechism Classes and helps with Vacation Bible School weekends.

Pastor John Thompson, S.T.S. preaches at a variety of services, usually from the pulpit. But for Wednesday Lenten Services in 2023, Pastor John is interviewing a series of “witnesses” to the Crucifixion. In the bottom two photos, he is interviewing the Crown of Thorns, read by Dr. Donna Smith, Phd.

Reverend Dr. David Wendall is one of our guest preachers. He serves as an assistant to the NALC Bishop and visits our church every year or two with an important message. In February 2023, he brought us the Fresh Eyes for Mission Summit which helped our church determine our present status and set our priorities and goals for the future.

Bishop John F. Bradosky, Bishop Emeritus of the NALC (North American Lutheran Church) is a member of our congregation. Bishop Bradosky travels widely visiting missions around the world.

Note: Christ Lutheran Church is also served by three deacons, two from the NALC and one who is an Anglican priest studying to become an NALC pastor. Read more about our deacons on the Our Deacons page.
