Interim Pastors 

We are joined by two Intentional Interim Pastors -  Naomi Garber and Julie Krahn. Pastor Naomi and Pastor Julie are both trained as Intentional Intermims. This means they are especially experienced in guiding congregations through periods of transition and call.

Will there be interim pastors? 

We have two Intentional Interim Pastors with training and experience in congregational transition and call. Pastor Naomi (started September 2023) and Pastor Julie (started December 2023) will be guiding the Transition and Call Committees along the journey. 


Will there be any change in worship and programming?

Online and in-person worship will continue to be the vibrant, spirit-filled worship St. Luke’s has always known. Our amazing staff will continue the worship we love, and alongside volunteers keep our programs strong.
