MEET OUR INTERIM PASTOR, PASTOR WARREN SMITH
Pastor Smith was born in Chicago and raised in Detroit, Michigan. He attended Concordia Seminary (Missouri Synod) which then was located in Springfield, Il (now in Fort Wayne, IN). He was ordained in 1972 and spent half of his ministry in the MO Synod, and most recently he served at St. Johns Lutheran ELCA until it closed last year. He since has been rostered in the NALC and has been attending Emmanuel. Pastor Smith has 2 daughters and 2 grandsons, and he and his wife, Sara, live in Monroeville. Pastor Smith enjoys reading, watching baseball, and walking although he says his arthritis limits this. If you haven’t met him, please introduce yourself. We are blessed to have him as an interim Pastor.
