We would like to extend a warm welcome to Vicar Lukas, and his wife Rebekah. Hayden will be serving as as our Vicar for over the next year. Rebekah will be serving at the Lutheran Haven over the next year as she completes an internship to become a Deaconess. Read more about both Hayden & Rebekah below:
Originally from Royal Oak, Michigan, I am the fourth in a family of five brothers. I went through religious education at Lutheran churches and schools in the area, which helped lead me to the decision to pursue pastoral ministry. I studied philosophy at Concordia University Wisconsin, where I met my wife, Rebekah, and went on to seminary. As part of my education, I am on a yearlong internship here at St. Luke’s, while Rebekah is on internship at the Lutheran Haven next door as she pursues certification as a deaconess and an M.A. in theology. I’m a novice hiker, an amateur musician and songwriter, a Beatles fan, and enjoy spending time with my wife and friends.
