STEPHEN MINISTRY

Stephen Ministry offers a proven and effective way to organize, equip, and supervise a team of congregation members—called Stephen Ministers—to provide high-quality, one-to-one, Christ-centered care to people in the congregation and the community experiencing life difficulties.

Bear one another’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ (Galatians 6:2, NRSV)      Read more...
  • Pastor Art Wuertz - Pastor

     

    I am a true Florida Cracker, born in Dunedin in the Tampa Bay area (hooray, Bucs!)

    After serving 20 years in the Navy as a trombonist in several fleet bands, I attended Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary in Columbia, SC, graduating with a Master of Divinity degree in 2006. I served as Pastor at Faith Ev. Lutheran Church in DeLand, FL for ten years. How thrilling to serve the Lord in my home state! I accepted the call here to Joy, and began my ministry here on January 1st, 2017.

    I have been married to my wife Debbie for 36 years and we have a daughter Amy, 32.
