Rev. Mark S. Luepke, Pastor

Pastor Mark’s passion for ministry revolves around preaching the Word and leading worship, helping people grow in their faith and in their knowledge and understanding of the Word, and engaging with children and young people in their enthusiasm for God’s gift of life. He thoroughly enjoys meeting and getting to know those he doesn’t yet know!
